This morning I got up early to print my boarding pass for the flight tomorrow. I use yahoo mail so during the process, I went to the yahoo France page to log into mail. And now I have discovered the best place for news. (I would go to Yahoo often in the US – but here, I do so much on my phone…)
There I found all the information on the Uber activities yesterday. And some of this activity was actually 2 blocks from my apartment. But I was out and about in Paris itself so saw nothing. Glad I saw nothing.
And trust me, if I saw this, I would have been walking the other way.
As I made my reservation for the Le Cars Air France bus to the airport, I also found this printed on their website – a special notice:
“Warning: Thursday, June 25, 2015. Due to taxis’ demonstration, strong disturbances are to be planned during the day. Stops can not be served during the day. We thank you for your understanding and kindly request you to excuse us for the caused embarrassment. The Sales Department.”
Did you see that Courtney Love tweeted to Francois Hollande – about them attacking tourists! You tell him, Courtney.
I do love France, but it is different.
I am safe. Not expecting demonstrations over the weekend and hopefully by the time I return next Wednesday, there will be something else for the French to worry about.
