Rest Day 5: Paris

So nice to see not just a few but lots of familiar faces in Paris; colleagues and students from my old school, Gillotts, in Henley-on-Thames. It was honestly bizarre to be accompanying a group of children but ultimately having no responsibility for them whatsoever. That said, it has brought into sharp focus just how nice it is to spend time with a large group of people rather than just myself. I could do with a day like today once every few weeks. Most of the pictures I took today were up and around the Eiffel Tower. Note the sign banning the current Parisian craze of attaching padlocks to anything that doesn’t move. On with the show!

  1. What is it with all those padlocks?? Some of the foot bridges over the Seine would have been un-paintable without a couple of days work with an angle grinder. Uncreative vandalism.

    • I thinks it’s to do with something called ‘love’… (and a film in which they put a padlock on the bridge. Queue passing bandwagon…)

What do you think?
