Paris without Cars

Today is “Paris sans Voiture” day – Paris without cars – in which for a Sunday afternoon only bicycles and pedestrians may use the streets in many areas of the city. 

An extremely rare selfie of me walking down the middle of the Champs-Elyses

 
It’s also an extremely fine Fall day and the tourists and Parisians are out in full force to enjoy the experience.

A small break in the masses and a wayward bus that was soon dispatched

Kind of a bonanza for pedi-cab operators (something I can’t remember seeing here before) and bicycle rental firms.
