Here comes ends of august (yes despite the awfully cold weather, we’re in august) and in Paris as in most french cities it means moving.  While wandering around St Germain, I saw this very strange moving truck:

As you may know, the “ecole des ponts et chaussées” building is to sell (far to expensive for me I guess) and it seems they started moving important things like the small obelisk.

    first, i agree about the weather…
    otherwise, yeah, lots of schools are on the move these days. i’ll refrain from further commenting here but maybe this would be a topic for posting…
    anyhow, who wants to buy the old "institut national agronomique"? i’ve no idea what plans the "école centrale" has made for its buildings…
    i’ll start researching on all this ;) will keep you posted!

    well traditional might not be the word, but people getting new jobs in new places or students tend to move just before September (depending on the beginning of classes). Summer is also the best time to have work done in the house, like painting, repairing the roof and so on, so lots of people are moving around this period.
