Still on Vacation
Posted by Dan Draney on July 6, 2005
Thanks to Ryne and Steve for covering for me. I’m still gone, so you have more of their fine work to look forward to. Here are a couple fun facts about France:
gasoline is 1.175 euro / liter = $5.80/gal
There was a big todo on the TV this morning about the announcement of the site for the 2008 Olympic Games. It was down to Paris and London. When the announcement was to be made, French TV covered it live from Singapore. There was a split screen with a shot of a big crowd in Paris ready to go wild. When the Committee said “London,” you could have heard a pin drop in the Paris scene. C’est dommage.
Correction: That would be 2012, not 2008.
