France on strike! Sorry boys, PARIS is closed today...

With transportation on strike (among many other things on strike), you could be happy to travel on the automated line 14 or at least the cramped line 1, because most of the other lines were completely out of order today. I won*t even mention the catastrophic situation in the train stations -most of them were closed, or inter regional trains, or even the nonexistent bus service...
Oh and don*t even try to use Paris*s new public biking service anywhere near the center, because that whole network was completely overused today.

But it*s fun! Even with a completely paralyzed public transportation network, many parisiansdidn*t loose their temper and nearly everyone was on foot or bike...

Tomorrow will be the same apparently!

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
