Guide Alex from das USA.   He was not ready for RLC when asked if this was the “Sleazy Pass Tour Company”.  But he got over it.

The tower area had fireworks that evening for Bastille Day  France’s Independence Day.  We had to get on the 6th floor roof to see the pyro-technoques show.  We took some good videos of the action.

Our super nice and helpful Perfect Hotel reception helper, Marie Chontal [mcndri@hotmail.fr]. She solved all of our logistics and planning challenges in Paris. What a great personality.

The Notre Dame church. The “Hunchback of Notre Dame” was not at there when we stopped by to visit.  Well, maybe we can catch up with him the next time we are in Paris town.                                                        Have a Hunch or Idea on your Back   Hmmm   JPEG   07 26 13

A worker outside our building was putting on a zink & tin roof on our building. I had never seen a tin metal roof before now. I hear cats do not like to walk on tin roofs when they get hot. I also was amazed by the large number of ceramic exhsust pipes in the tops of every building.

I think I figured out why some people have the belief that the French folks would rather sit outside in a cute little café drinking coffee or wine rather than working.
.
First there are few air conditioners and ventilating fans compared to the former British colony that occupies a position in the northern part of the continent that is directly west of the Atlantic Ocean.
.
Secondly since it gets hot in France during the summer months, there likely lots of sweaty people who would rather be outside flapping their gums in the cooler breeze, rather than being stuck in a hot non-HVAC building working.
.
Further, the French never developed the habit of taking a mid day siesta like the Spaniard folks who live in the lower & likely hotter, south of France.

Well, thats my hypothesis and I’m sticken to it, Y’all.

I think I figured out how the Southern Part of the USA got started with the phrase “Y’ALL “.
.
The French used to occupy/own or control the State of Louisiana at one time. The French language has one word for ” you-singular ” and a separate word for ” you-plural “.
The English language is deficient in this area. In English the word “you” can mean singular and the exact same word is used for “you plural “.
So, the intelligent residents of Louisiana, Alabama, and Tennessee came up with their own special word for you-plural in English.

 

This newly coined word for the deficient English language is none other than:
——–” You A’LL”———-

Many people idolize Paris, France.  My experience was overshadowed by the excessive number of pickpockets, thief’s and parasites that feed on theft from the tourists that come to visit.   This fact was confirmed by every other traveler who has visited Paris recently.  It’s like a one time nice neighbor hood that has run down, and staffed by riff-raff.  I am not implying that everyone, or even the majority of people in Paris are delinquent.  I am confident there are millions of nice, honest, hard working, non-arrogant people living in Paris.  However it is our experience that we witnessed more attempted thefts on our person,  than in any other place we visited in Europe.  Many times we had to divert from our paths because we had someone walking three inches behind us.  This was especially true on stairs.  For some reason the thieving folks like the bouncing of walking up or down stairs as part of their scam of “what’s in your pocket is mine now, game”.    I don’t care if never visit Paris (or France) again in the future.   I did not like the constant badgering of the entitlement mentality that the tourists are their to be picked clean of anything of value.  No thanks.  You keep it.  I will go somewhere else next time.  Let’s protest, yeah.  Parasites out of Paris.  Parasites out of Paris.  …    …   …

Yippee. I am out of Paris France and heading to Switzerland.
