Bad time for Tourism in #Paris, France

Bye, Paris, France

After Kim Kardashian rushing from her luxury hotel, Vladimir Putin staying alive away from Elysée Palace … bad indian summer for Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo’s tourist office (not to mention French President François Hollande re-election polls …).

Hi, François from Paris !

I don’t know what happened to #KimKardashian in #Paris, and I don’t give a d…

A so-called “Kim Kardashian” allegedly was tasting French Fries in Paris, France.

Possibly she spent the night somewhere insanely expensive.

Supposedly she was stolen jewels worth a few millions of dollars.

kardashian-2

Apparently she could not do any good selfie, neither catch any Pokemon.

Therefore (or for any other reason), maybe she is gone drink coffee elsewhere.

Who knows ?

And who cares, appart from Paris Mayor’s so-called spin doctors ?

“Can he fix France ?”, asks Time magazine. “Yes, we can faster” says … French François Hollande. But who cares ?

Time François Hollande France

No comment. But who cares #IRL, anyway, about France after (or even during) Charles de Gaulle, about yet another French big mouth from Corrèze François Hollande, or about whatever French XXIst century‘s President‘s speeches, be they in English ?

Yes We Can See Friday

France is a big, somewhat fat, but never big enough, thing, somewhere between Krueger Safari Park and Tivoli Holiday Park

Sorry #NSA #USA, Giant #Facebook Bug is my Fault. I listened to Petula Clark on Youtube

I’m sorry, but please, Facebook, don’t spy stupidly on me. I’m French … next time you do that, it will not just be a Petula Clark joke, my President will spoil your whole internet thing for your Thanksgivings, not just sabotage Facebook a short while.

Facebook

Besides, I’m not sure you are not wasting your time and American taxpayers money with me : I’m just a normal French man with a normal French Cat and a standard MacBook. I can’t see why this could be of interest for America, all the more, since most of my eBooks are  on Amazon, all blog posts on WordPress, and over 42 000 messages on Twitter, not to mention Gmail.

And by the way, don’t be overstupid, don’t annoy me and so many people just because we want to make real new friends in facebook and you prefer your customers to stay with your standard bunch of gamers, sick brains, and call-people.

Frenchonomics : Good News, We Know the French Paradox is a Fake ; Bad News, The French Don’t

French Ducks and Geese are happy : US ban on Foie Gras is good for their health and longevity. The bad news is, the French will eat enormous quantities of Foie for Christmas and New-Year even if they are bankrupt. Because this is the French “tradition”.

Yet another “Place to Be” in France this Summer (but with the same people as in Paris, far less taxis than taxes as anywhere in France, and unlike Saint Tropez, no helicopters)

La Rochelle, Plage des Minimes

Forget Paris and the Velib’, too commonplace and Paris-Plages is over. Forget Saint Tropez and Pampelone Beach, too nouveau-riche and Bardot is over. Forget Marrakech. The place to be now is La Rochelle, where the smart people go.

New France, where the smart (money) go (es away from)

Of course, France is now a socialist paradise, with a lot of lining up in front of empty places with red, great promises outside and red carpets speeches but no food inside and bikes instead of cars.

Do you know why we are queueing up ? No, who cares to know why, we have to, that’s the new way it is, maintenant

And unlike in Asian communist countries, the best and brightest don’t (all) escape to study in Harvard or Berkeley and create startups in Sillicon Valley or Boston, but (some, surely too many) stay and study in one of the many French graduate schools for civil servants with a view to become at best Minister of startups in Sillicon Sentier, at worst Minister of whatever doesn’t work in France like Industry, Small Business Growth, University, Innovation, Immigration, Housing, Economics, Ecology, Chicken, Export, Chicken Export …

Best an brightest, Junior-Minister of “Numeric Economy” under supervision of the Minister of “Industrial Renewal”

And the bad news is, France may be the sole remaining communist place in the world with an unrealistically overvalued currency German style but no black exchange market (yet) like they had in former DDR or other communist German Hinterland, refurbished Asian or Qatar owned hotels with remote controlled color TV and high speed internet but communist standard room service, and a business airport close to Paris with standard capitalist traffic jams but communist standard helicopter service for Party members and Government only, and far less taxis than taxes, of course.

Red Carper toward l’avenir is in La Rochelle, maintenant

Anyway, La Rochelle is the place to be, now, if you enjoy France or can’t avoid it.

Psssst boys, this is not the place where the girls are …

So far, so French so good, growth is around the La Rochelle corner.

Green (Lights) at Work in Poitiers, August 22-24 … or so some French Believe (in Frenchology)

The Rocky Green Picture Show Must Go On

Some French believe, that red politicians with green glaze care for nature and environment, that France can afford driving German Panzers if the children ride small bicycles, and that their French water and Chinese solar energy are clean and free.

Frenchology at work …

Let them talk and believe what they want about ecology and whatever other legends : they have done so for decades, if not centuries, nobody cares and the world is neither a better, nor a worse place to live in just because the French people, French politicians, French unions, French Euro and French business people are and talk … so French.

To be or not to be (French ? Wrong ?), that is the question …

The trouble would be, if the French decided to escape from France. Fortunately enough, they know, that the problem is the French, not France, and that if they go elsewhere, where people speak French, it will most surely be the same story of student strikes, big energy companies and endless political discussing like in some parts of Canada (which they still believe to be smaller than France, mostly French speaking and waiting for newcomers from old, poor France), crazy soccer like everywhere around France except Germany (and nobody would go settle in Germany unless starving and German speaking, neither of which is very frequent in France unless at military war time), and Qatar owned hotels and golfs like in France but more expensive than in France. So the escaping French usually stay very close to French food, medicaid and borders, with a preference for French speaking parts of Geneva, Brussels and London, which explains why they have built fast, air-con trains going there (and back because dentists, wine and cheese are so much cheaper in France) and don’t threaten to invade the rest of the world, with the possible exception of Marrakech, but the French fast train is still under construction there and will not be connected to France unless Spain is at sale and France can afford to buy it and rebuild the railways (which are not the same width as in France), which seems very unlikely. So, if some French believe, or even say, France is green, just let them believe, or even talk,  as long as they stay, believe and talk in their Green France and don’t interfere with Euro(pe) issues, British Olympics, serious soccer, real business or banking regulations (as regards building cars, it doesn’t matter, soon they will build only German and Japanese  cars like everybody else in Europe).

No panic, it’s just (France) Grass

So French, so good : “growth is around the (French) corner and all lights are green”.

Life is like a Swiss Chocolate Box, especially in Switzerland. Don’t let it Melt

Usually, the “have” are better off than the “have not” and money can help for a good, enjoyable, better, extraordinary life, especially in purpose built places like there are quite a lot in Switzerland. But not always, even in perfect places for the “have”.

RF, August 18th, 2012.
