Pretty architecture

A view from one of my walks this weekend. I LOVE the sculpture above each of the windows...

Strange Parisian Advertisements...

I've decided to start a new semi-regular feature on my blog that showcases the strange advertisements that I come across in Paris. The following has started popping up in the metro, on bus stops, and includes a HORRIFYING commercial that has started popping up in movie theaters.

Check it out...

It's an ad for Coke Zero that translates to "the taste of Coca Cola with zero sugar" which seems tame enough at first. But look closely - there is a huge TONGUE with elephant-style legs and an eyeball with legs. SO SO strange.

You think that's weird.....

Check out the ad that's been running in theaters!!!

It's a bit much to translate, but just to give you an idea...the tongues think they are drinking regular coke...the eyeball tells them it's Coke Zero, then the tongues get mad and make fun of the eyeball, taunting him and saying that he can't taste because he doesn't have a tongue. WHAAATT????

I can't even get my head around it.

One word...

I'm off to do so this evening at the American Church in Paris and then to two election parties! I cannot wait and am looking forward to updating you all on what it's like voting as an expat.

FUN game!


This was so much fun - but it's HARD. The crazy thing is how many countries I forgot! Some of them I knew immediately upon seeing them...some I had never even heard of before!!

Try it - what's your score???
