And so the new week begins, with me wondering what the next few days will bring in the shape of strikes, set-backs and other annoying things beginning with 's'.

Retardé means 'delayed' but also 'retarded' in French, and sometimes you have to wonder about the mentality of some of the users of Parisian public transport these days. I think I've already sounded off (about a year ago, I seem to recall) about the funny young chaps who pull the alarm just before getting off to go to school; hilarious.

I can't even remember what the problem above was, but it was either a fire down the line, someone actually on the line, a strike or a technical problem of some kind, due either to the heat, the cold or the wrong sort of something somewhere no doubt, take your pick.

Must say I'm rather intrigued by the combination of blues, purply-pink and grimed-out rich sepia which has popped out of the post-processing wash this time.

'The Paris-Ile-de-France train system takes you there!' shouts the slogan on the side of the carriage. 'If you're lucky, ironises back the screen. The truth, as usual, lies somewhere in between.
