Entente cordiale

As always we had an excellent time in London, and good weather too (it's always a pleasure to make those statistics and clichés lie ;-). It's just too bad that our last glimpse of London was half the subway commuters holding the Evening Standards (was it its title?) in front of us with this huge black headline: "LONDON BOMBS SEIZED".

Which brings me to an easy exit to shorten this post :-), the Paris and London subway authorities should really get together. Paris would learn how to maintain a clean subway and London how to have a reliable infrastructure. Now that would be a welcome progress on both sides of the Channel -- currently celebrating 100 years of "entente cordiale" (in English I would translate this roughly as a century without fighting each other to death) -- since London is only five subway stations from Paris, n'est-ce pas ?
