Metlinks OTW : 30.12.09

Tis the week between xmas and the new year and things should be pretty quiet in the city. But are they really that quiet? Let’s see…


    This week

  • Disappointed by the xmas presents? Why not sell them on the web?
  • The end of the RER A strike last week-end and some traffic on RER C between Paris and Juvisy should also be noted.
  • Yves Rocher, founder of the brand that wears his name, died last saturday at 79.
  • This year

  • Taking it easy with our 3-year-old smoking ban? This article mentions growing numbers of people starting to ignore the ban…
  • The tradi to overthrow the baguette?
  • New year!

  • Details on what metro will be running at what time on New Year’s Eve. And for free!
  • Did you check out the Eiffel Tower light show? It runs up until 31th so don’t miss it!
  • Next year…

  • New rules to liven up Parisian dance scene?
  • 2010 in Paris means it’s been 100 years since the last major flooding (floodings that used to appear on a 100-year cycle basis…) To commemorate this event, an exhibit will begin on January 20th at the Pavillon de l’eau
  • Prices will be on the rise as well… SNCF trains for example, but also taxi rides and many more things I guess…
