WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM ROMAIN :
'The TGV makes us guessed it is in France or in a neighbour country close to the boundary.
The giant bench is a work of Claude Ponti exposed in a park in Nantes. Nice photos, nice paradise.'


ANSWER TO HIS ANSWER:

BRAVO ROMAIN,
YES! YOU ARE RIGHT. THIS BEAUTIFUL PARK IS IN NANTES, FRANCE
YOU ARE GREAT!

ROISSY EN FRANCE

If you go to Paris, especially from America, the chance is high that you will land on Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) rather than on Orly or Le Bourget. This is a very busy airport with four runways, over 1,350 aircraft movements per day, and almost 6 million passengers per month; you can imagine. Arriving for the first time, chance also high that you could experience some difficulties to get out from this very complicate place to find your way to the center of Paris, by bus or by train. Don’t be upset, better enjoy everything happening and think to remember how to go back on time for not missing your returning flight because the airport is huge, traffic jam in Paris is famous, and union-strike in France is not anything unusual. Better stay near the airport for the night before departure and that is the way I regularly adopted with some frustration. But where could I stay? It is not difficult to find a hotel fitting in all budgets from about 50 euros and up, but it is hard to discover a place where one could go out and enjoy the last evening at a good restaurant or do some exercises in a quiet park, or just wander  around nice streets. Forget it, it is only a dream, there is no city around the airport, I thought. 


But I was wrong. Last year I discovered a village called ROISSY EN FRANCE, a picturesque place just near the airport. This year, thanks to the strike that put my way back to the airport at risk, I came to my hotel much earlier than usual. So I had time to explore this village with large park full of flowers and beautiful trees, melancholic old streets, excellent restaurants, and a modern Maison de la Culture. I learned about ‘The world of bees’ through a number of posters all along the path from the large park up to the high street. Through some pictures pasted in this Post 161 I would like to share with you a happy day I've got before leaving Paris last June.
