[Euros Cherrueix 2012]

A few weeks ago I was in Cherrueix, France to watch the Scottish team compete. I took plenty of photos and video of the event (with multiple cameras). The top 10 looks different from usual with France not even in the top three countries.

I took most of the photos from along the pit/technical area but went north towards the sea on the last race:

Working in Paris

I was working in Neuilly-sur-Seine the previous two weeks and I found some time before I left to visit the Eiffel Tower (which I could actually see out of the office window). There was a long (1 hour 40 minutes) queue but then the actual ascent didn't take more than a few of minutes and it didn't feel as high up as I thought it would be.

Amongst my photos I also took a video of a flashing "pedestrians crossing!" sign above the road. They have a similar system to the United States where some pedestrian crossings have no red light on the driver's side (only a flashing warning triangle) so they can still drive over it as long as they don't hit anyone.

My French is quite poor despite having learned it at school for 5 years. Bonsoir.
