Needless to mention French transport workers are striking against railroads and airlines. Fuel depots and refineries have been blocked for weeks, garbage workers are refusing to pick up trash, and there has been a surprise blockade of supply trucks at the main food terminal for the Paris region... and the world was worried about South Africa not being able to live up to everybody's expectations during the World Cup in 2010!!!
Anyway, David Guetta has been welcomed with pomp last night by 80'000 people in the Champs de Mars where I decided to take stroll a few hours before the show began...
