2016/12/31 Paris, Musée des Egouts, Tour Eiffel, Coulée Verte, Place des Voges

After meeting Mathias in Paris, we went to spend the afternoon in Paris. We started with Musée des Egouts. We got to learn how most streets in Paris have an underground street for sewers and the machiens they use to clean all the crap that accumulates in the tunnels:

And yet another day, we walked La Coulée Verte, a nice green path through Paris using the right of way of an old train line not in use anymore:







Then, we finished with Place des Voges and Victor Hugo's house:






There are also plenty of art stores there:







And that was it for this year, not too much, but then again we spent a bunch of our time in [Belgium this year|/perso/belgium
