The Paris if you Please group had a "Fun in the Fourteenth" walk to view particularities of that arrondissement. Sab, our organizer did a great job of planning the day, including the provision of questions and answers to what we would be seeing. I am including below as photos so you can share in the fun.
|Thomas Paine, The Golden Age|
|Old Petite Ceinture Line|
|Quarry Miner, Montsouris Parc|
|Spanish astronomer Arago and|
marker for The Meridian Line
|The Meridian line made famous again in Davinci Code|
|Weather Station Montsouris Parc|
|A Wallace Fountain|
|Indicator of Roman and Medicis Aqueduct|
|What a pleasant surprise|
to see street art by our own organizer!
|A less happy sight but also surprising,|
a large active prison right in Paris. Who knew?
|When the numbering system did not allow for additions, they added|
bis for the second, ter for the third and quater for the fourth repeat of a number.
|Of course we finished with dinner. We even picked up a couple|
of new people to join us! Yum Saravanaa Bhavan!
