We found ourselves grounded this weekend due to illness on my part (I maintain that the Purrito passed it to me; she maintains otherwise), so here’s an opportunity to post the pictures from last Saturday’s jaunt to the recently-reopened (uh, April) roof of the grande arche.
There are also pictures of the district in general, because why the hell not.
The ducks were en grève.
I like these trees on the southern end of the esplanade.
A seldom-photographed (cough) statue.
That’s what we’re here for.
The historic axis, as seen from the top of la grande arche.
It’s the classic two-trains-travelling-in-opposite-directions problem.
Nanterre-side public housing from the 70s.
The view towards the back, with the new rugby stadium in the lower right.
Had I known that picnicking was allowed, we might have hauled our Chipotle up here.
If fish could fly.
This is where the autonomous bus lives.
