Paris in Lockdown

This BFMTV link shows, probably for the first (and last?) time, the completely empty streets of Paris, during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in 2020.

Le Midi

As a Postscript to this page of France, my attention was recently drawn to a YouTube video of the now-closed mountain route through Les Grands Goulets. It took my mind back some years when, during the summer months, a number of us would drive from Ferney-Voltaire to "le Midi" (de la France) for a weekend's camping.

We would sometimes take the autoroutes A7 and A8, between Lyon and Cannes, sometimes take the N85 Route Napoleon, between Grenoble and Cannes (via Gap, Sisteron, Castellane and Grasse). Once or twice, we took the now-closed "scenic route" through the Parc Naturel Regional du Vercors, between Grenoble and Gap (via Les Grands Goulets; see the first two Related Links)! An absolutely great experience; and (brown-trouser) fun!!!
