Some people come to Paris and never set foot on the bus.
You'd have to drag them kicking and screaming onboard a Paris bus.
Yet they're missing out on a very relaxed way to see Paris with all it's monuments.
You see lots of architectural details sitting on a bus you'd waltz right by walking in the street.
Like this sheep on rue du Four in the 6th. Shouldn't they call it rue du Mouton?
You can make notes of shops you want to go back to while on the bus.
Get interesting textural effects that Photoshop hasn't dreamt up yet.
"I took the 47 today all the way to Gare de l'Este and bought a pink scarf inside the train station!"
The nice French lady sitting behind her kindly pointed out,
"If you look to your right you can see the Louvre".
We could hardly keep from giggling. You do have nice little encounters on Paris buses that never happen on the Metro. No way.
Next time I need to draw a Paris street lamp I know where to go.
We changed buses in front of Repetto ballerina shop on rue de Sevres.
It may be a while before I go 'en point' again...
Or wear sandals...I was sitting on the bus when I got this shot...
OK, you may want to close your eyes for the next 2 pics, except my doc is vraiment charmante et trés beau mec/basically gorgeous..
I wish I could say the same about my new botte. Enorme et trés lourde. Who needs to lift weights when you've got this thing on? A mere 61€ in case you're dying to get one by the way.
Russell Crowe and I are now practically kissing cousins.
Post-clinique trauma, we had a bash-up dejeuner at Cafe Chezelles.
Me, I'll be taking bus 67 + 74. Then walking at a snail's pace but at least I can walk. Yesterday I walked to the local alimentaire/grocery on the island and found my much-missed Haribo. This 'boot is made for walkin' after all.For more info on: HOW-TO TAKE THE BUS!
