2012 Earth Hour in Paris...

March 30/2012 - 8:30-9:30 pm
Paris will switch off for an hour the outdoor lighting of more than

200
public buildings: the City Hall, the Parc des Princes, the Notre
Dame Cathedral
, the Hotel des Invalides, the Opera Garnier and
the Opera
Bastille, as well as many bridges, fountains and Parisian
squares
...
As for
the Eiffel Tower, it can't be extinguished for more than 5 mn
for security reasons.

[Here in Griset: candlelight dinner with a firefighter, for security reasons].





Earth Hour 2011 created history as the world's largest ever voluntary action with
people, businesses and governments in 135 countries across every continent
coming together to celebrate an unambiguous commitment to the one thing that
unites us all - the planet.


[]
This year, hundreds of landmarks around the world, including Washington’s National
Cathedral, Big Ben in London, the Great Wall of China and Tokyo Tower planned to dim
their lights at 8:30 p.m. local time Saturday as part of a global effort to shine a spotlight
on climate change.

The Badaling section of the Great Wall is shown before Earth Hour in Beijing.
About 124 Chinese cities joined the worldwide initiative to call on people to switch
off unnecessary lights for one hour in support for energy-saving efforts and the
prevention of global warming.

First Mission to Marseilles...

Yay! Next G@tto's fief is going to be in Marseilles, south of the Vieux Port...

not far from the pedestrian area of cours Honoré d'Estienne d'Orves / place aux Huiles...

[On the left hand, the place aux Huiles, - on the right, the cours Honoré d'Estienne d'Orves]. 
In short, all the area south of the old port is going to be 'MyMarseilleFief'.

On my flash trip to Marseille from February 26 to 29: 3 nights at 2 different hotels:

Etap (ok) & Vertigo (great), both located in my favorite spot, south shore of the old port.

[Etap - 46, rue Sainte, 13001]


[Vertigo - 38, rue du Fort Notre-Dame, 13001]

- Seeking a flat around there with some outside space and
found it! - with two small
verandas, yay.
- Tested and approved 3 asian restaurants
, 2 Vietnamese
and 1 Japanese
, the thai being left for next time, with the
rest of the kind (no bouillabaisse, thanks).






Coming soon some other pics from my non-stop walking from the Catalans' beach to 
the Noailles' area, to get acquainted with the city...
