This is the way to go: House Boat! These guys are from The Dutchland and they went a few hundred meters to the left and parked the boat there. Nice way to travel!

You need a way bigger shovel when the guy is big!

Another Day of walking in Paris – A few Pictures

This time it was from the water of the river up to the little streets on one of the hills in Paris. I love to get lost in a city. You walk here you walk there and you see something that looks interesting so you go there. With the map on the iPhone no problem to find back to the next bike station any time. How easy did that get???

Memorial for the Deported in the 2nd World War. More than 200.000 people got deported from Vichy France to the Nazi concentration camps.
Wikipedia: “A circular plaque on the floor of the underground chamber is inscribed: “They descended into the mouth of the earth and they did not return.” Along both walls of the narrow chamber are 200,000 crystals with light shining through meant to symbolize each of the deportees who died in the concentration camps; at the end of the tunnel is a single bright light. Either side of the chamber are small rooms that seem to depict prison cells. Opposite the entrance is a stark iron gate overlooking the Seine at the tip of the Þle de la CitĂ©.

A “flame of eternal hope” burns and The Tomb of the Unknown Deportee bears the inscription: “Dedicated to the living memory of the 200,000 French deportees sleeping in the night and the fog, exterminated in the Nazi concentration camps.”

At the exit to the chamber is the injunction, engraved, found at all sites memorializing the victims of the Nazis: “Forgive but never forget.””
