The Paris Métro

The Paris Métro has 245 stations within 34 square miles of the City of Paris. It is said that there is “no point in the city situated more than 400 meters away from a metro station.” I am using the excellent online route planner to set my trip from the hotel in Arcueil to my new place on Rue Cambon. It includes the interesting information that travelling by theP1000809 Métro is estimated to cost 25 g of CO2, as opposed to 1466 g of CO2 by car.

This is the view from my window of the Marriott Courtyard in Arcueil. Not so bad, considering that the room is free. I was glad to see, just down the street, a car dealer selling Chryslers, Dodges and Jeeps. I also saw a man parking a black Mustang GT that looked (and sounded) good amidst the Citroëns, Puegeots, Fiats and Mercedes’.
