Metlinks OTW : 22.01.10

Wow, this is my first metlinks for 2010! Doesn’t it feel weird to write 2010? Well, I’ll get used to it soon enough I hope… Anyhow, here are some things that caught my attention this week, in a completely random order.


  • For the past few months, a group has been living illegally in a luxurious mansion off place des Vosges as a way to demonstrate against the difficulties of students and others to find decent and affordable places to live in Paris. A sentence has recently been passed by justice that they will be forced out of the building. You can follow the whole story on the press review of this group’s website
  • A lovely shot illustrating this week’s weather: Eiffel tower shrouded in mist
  • The possibility of a public transport strike on Feb. 3rd is looming…
  • Watch for all the closing exhibits at the end of the week! Among others, Teotihuacan at Quai Branly will stay open every day until midnight before it ends on Sunday…
  • But of course there are many more to come. Here is a proposed recap of upcoming exhibits!
  • Three concerts are organised in Paris in order to support victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
  • What about the soldes? Did you go crazy? Here’s the Figaro‘s take on their success for this year.
  • Neat post by David Lebovitz about mistakes onemight make while ordering in a Parisian restaurant.
  • A funny mistake or maybe we should indeed make line 14 doubly automatic??
