The Happiest Place On Earth

Once upon a time garlic-chewing Frenchmen in blue and white sweaters rode bicycles through the 'rues' with onions around their necks whistling La Marseillaise whilst avoiding gritty black and white humanist street photographer's...

Those happy days are gone now, of course, so forget baguettes and berets - get a dose of true contemporary French culture on any RER train ride today!

Here's Mickey - or is it Minnie - in yer face (twice) on my RER B ride home yesterday.

Nice to see we're keeping up with modern trends and are not quite yet just the 'living museum' we were in danger of becoming a few years ago.

Thank you Disney, and of course thank you Mickey (or is it Minnie) too for making our tired old capital 'The Happiest Place On Earth' once again.

The End.
