Totally Frenched Out

I almost forgot to post about a boat ride Kendra & I took up the Canal de l'Ourcq about a month ago. Every weekend during the summer, from June through the end of August, you can take a boat ride from the Bassin de la Villette up the canal de l'Ourcq for only 1€ each way (kids under 10 ride free). The boat stops at Pantin, Bobigny, Noisy le sec and Aulnay sous Bois.

It was such a success this summer (with over 50,000 passengers), that they are extending it into the fall, with a few more events that you can read about here. As you'll see from the pictures, it's definitely not a ride down the Seine, but it was neat to see another side of Paris, and hey, you can't beat a 3hr boat ride for only 2€!
