I was looking out the window of our hotel in Rennes. There was some major construction in the drive up area to the train station.
In 2012 the Seine got really high. Or so I thought until I saw some of the historic high water marks that are scattered around the city. On Ile de la Cité there is a mark about six feet up the side of a building; I can't remember the year that was annotated; maybe it was the year where people were going about in rowboats in the area where I usually stay.
Tourists; when I first went to Paris they were mostly Japanese; these are from China.
