Paris by Cell Phone: The Week That Was (21/11 – 27/11/2010)

This is a collection of the pictures I’ve posted this week on my Twitter page (feel free to follow!) for Paris by Cell Phone.

Special, this week only, a hint to last week’s “Where Is It Wednesday”!

Nov 21: Holy Sunday

Eglise St-Merri

Nov 22: Monument Monday

The Île-de-la-Cité including the Pont des Arts and the the Acadamie Française on the right.

Sadly typical in Paris

Nov 24: Where is It Wednesday

Even if Sab guessed it correctly in an e-mail to me, I’m gonna keep this open until next Wednesday. A hint…it’s in front of Paris proper’s biggest shopping mall.

Nov 25: Pot Luck Thursday

I had this hamburger and homemade fries in a French bistro and posted it ironically to wish y’all a Happy Thanksgiving!

Nov 27: Special Saturday

Christmas lights on the street near my office.

Une Coupe de Champagne

I was invited as a member of the press (ooh la la) to a gallery vernissage for the show “Anticipation d’une ville” in La Gallery Deafcto at La Défense. (My review of it is here.) This photo is of one of the perks of being an amateur journalist.
