The great stink!


Just concluded a week-long vacation to Paris. The weather played nice with just a sliver of drizzle one of the days. Broke my glasses in a roller-coaster ride in Disneyland! It was funny walking everywhere in shades in the dead of the night. Nothing new for someone in Qatar, in fact it is how business is conducted here. Just that the French capital of chic is not yet ready for a midnight assault with shades. On the way back the police officer in Frankfurt commented that it was too dark in the airport! Though, when I told him that I had broken my glasses on vacation he felt sorry for me.

Caught this fish very dead in an aquarium right in the middle of Galleries Lafayette in Paris. With all the bright lights it couldn’t be missed. Seemed prophetic of the state of affairs in the French capital, though. The economic state of the art seems very fishy!
