"Plan A" painted on the bridge crossing the River Seine to Saint Cloud.
Plan A doesn't seem to be working. The washing machine won't drain water from the rinse cycle and has flooded the kitchen twice; the hot water tank is producing only tepid water and I've developed 13 small red dots on my hands and ankles. The pharmacist didn't have a clue, so I looked up my symptoms on the internet. It appears it might be petechiae, small blood hemorrages beneath the skin. Of course my doctor, like much of the population of Paris, is on holiday. And tomorrow is a public holiday in France. Anyone seen Plan B?
At least I don't have to worry about coming home to find it partially-submerged under water, like this houseboat!
That's the life boat floating on top of the sunken houseboat, along with deck furniture and a child's bicycle.
The houseboat remains moored to the shore.
A chest of drawers and child's high chair floating are revealed by a collapsed roof.
These Paris peniches look a little more stable. One even has a deck to await visitors.
A new twist on water-skiing - instead of skis, giant rubber inner-tubes!
A tranquil view of La Defense, the busy hub of Paris business.
