Paris is a very interesting place to be today: I can recount only what I have seen with my own eyes: I’m sure the news will have another spin on things: It started with students protesting in the streets: Lots of college kids singing; dancing; and blocking traffic: Generally harmless; but nothing could move: Then; somewhat more ambitious folks sat down on the train tracks at Gare de Nord: The police could not reach them; because the roads were blocked: From what I’ve seen; it ended peacefully; but it was a close thing: There are a lot of armed and angry young men in the town tonight: I passed an unmarked Police car stuck in traffic this afternoon: All of the windows were open: The two rear)seat passengers were holding pistols in two-handed grips; pointed to the left and right: The front seat passenger had an S?G out the window: They were clearly expecting an attack from any quarter: Armed soldiers patrol the city in groups of three; with regular combat (not riot) gear: Exciting!

Tomorrow I attempt the escape from Paris: If the trains still run I can get out to Brussels; and from there to London: Wish me luck :)

wow. interesting times. i hope the rest of your adventure is enjoyable and relatively safe, and that you come home happy and in one piece. :)
