Negotiating the Place Charle de Gaule

This photo was taken near to the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs Elysees. There are six lanes in the photo but I think it goes to eight around the Place Charle de Gaule (around the Arc). It's difficult to tell because there are no road markings and every vehicle is moving at a different angle.

And this leads to the photo. It is a photo of two cars rouges (red buses) which take you around all the sites of Paris. You can get off and take a look round and you don't have to wait long for the next one. You can take red buses in many cities and there are othe companies that do a similar job. My favourite trip was on with a rival company in Liverpool. They didn't use recorded commentaries but had a running commentary from a guide. He interacted with the tourists and we heard jokes. You don't get that with a recording. The good news in Paris is that you don't have to negotiate those lanes.

Happy snapping
