Driving around Paris is crazy – solid traffic with motorcycles tearing around you……mega stress!! Really, Paris is a place to follow some suggested tours but to walk or take the metro. It is by no means ideal to have a driver take you around…..way to chaotic and it takes too long to get from A to B.
Anyway…..a few photos of Paris to whet the appetite…..I’m not saying “don’t go”…..far from it, we can give you lots of ideas, but to be a success you need to launch out on your own and should be able to do some walking…..then you will enjoy it!
The Peripherique – about 2 miles or so in diameter is the beltway / ring road around central Paris – like an 8 or 10 lane Indy track with cars doing from zero to 80mph and bikes coming through the narrow gaps at 60mph while the cars are doing 30mph!! Just don’t change lane…..I’ll put some video up when I get home.
Oh well…..maybe some more about Paris tomorrow !
