Saturday Morning, 9/25
Also, uploaded some pictures of the strike march that took place on thursday (9/23). Headlines such as "French workers strike, throng streets in new showdown with Sarkozy over raising retirement age" were all over the streets. It was really crazy because I knew that the strike was going on but I wasn't aware of exactly where the march was taking place. All I knew was that, since the metro's were striking too -_-*, that it was going to be a huge crowd of people the whole day...was not looking forward to having to catch the metro home from school.
Anyways, so before class I looked up where the nearest Post Office la poste was in paris and I found one in the Odeon district. When I got off the metro stop I saw all of these police blocking the streets, insane car traffic and crowds of people. Then I started to hear chanting. It was really bizarre. When I heard the chanting I continued walking towards it. Then I came upon the strike march, the line of people, block to block, went on for miles. Look at the pictures and video's I uploaded. I was so happy that I ran into the march by mistake. It was definitly a priceless cultural experience, so glad I got to be a part of it :)
After watching the march for a little bit I finally found the Post Office, so people should be expecting some postcards soon! <3
I love Paris,
