I was at the Toronto Auto Show on Sunday so this is a fitting post. I found this video while poking around on Will Leitch’s personal site. It depicts a formula one driver taking a Porsche on an insane trip across Paris at speeds exceeding 140mph apparently. He drives right down streets where I was lost while on a trip in 2001. This odd fellow game up to me and started yelling random French words. I could never sort out what he wanted, but I just said “Non” and got out of there. When I found myself looking at large industrial buildings and walking under creepy rail bridges, I realized I need to get myself back to pretty Paris before someone cuts me up.But back to the video. This is one scary ride, but also visually stunning because Paris is such a beautiful and interesting city. Keep your eye open for obvious landmarks like the Arc De Triomphe, and the Louvre, as well as the host of pedestrians that periodically poke up.
