Business As Usual

Business As Usual, originally uploaded by Paris Set Me Free.
Yesterday the 'tempete Xynthia' visited France, apparently killing ten people. Luckily it wasn't anything like as bad as December 1999 - i remember returning after Christmas to what looked like a war zone. We have seen some damage though.

Here in the Cité Universitaire, a special park-like area where foreign students live in the south of Paris, there were a lot of branches on the ground, and the odd arboreal casualty.

Although all the official parks and squares - all the places where wayward trees could drop bits of wood on people's heads - were closed, the Cité U seemed to escape this rule, and studyers, runners and Sunday afternoon strollers were to be seen going about their business as usual.
