Metlinks OTW : Week 2, 11.09.09

Welcome to the 2nd edition of Metlinks of the Week. Here are some tit-bits from the past week, as well as other general links. Enjoy!


  • So he wears “man-heels” and stand on little podium and buses in shorter people. Nonetheless, there were – waytoomany – articles on the height of Nicolas Sarkozy. Does this really qualify as a “deepening row”?
  • Having a bad day? C’est la Vie de Merde. Maybe, after reading, you day won’t seem so bad anymore…
  • The staff at Le Figaro identified 9 buildings/monuments that are under threat. Do you agree?
  • A delicious read for chocolate lovers.
  • Better still, mark your calendar for 14-18 October. Salon du Chocolat is back for another chocolicious expo.
  • David Lebovitz is having a book signing tomorrow, Saturday 12 September, from 2.00-3.30pm at A la Boîte (31 quai de Conti). Foodies should not miss this!
  • This is perhaps unavoidable, as horribly kitschy as it could be. The rickshaw is now serving Paris too.
  • If you plan to visit Paris, why not have your own personal greeter to show you around? If you live in Paris and know it well, why not consider volunteering as a greeter? For more information, check out Parisien d’un jour.
  • In commemorating 50th anniversary of Cuban Revolution, a photography exhibition is taking place at the gallery of Brownstone Foundation (26 Rue Saint-Gilles).
  • Admire the works of great Flemish artists at Musée Jacquemart-André from 11 September 2009 to 11 January 2010.
