Sans Domicile Fixe – the tent city on Canal du St Martin

forgot to mention that i bumped into Robert de Niro the other day in Paris



…ok so it’s not Robert, but my look-alike friend, Florent on his rooftop in Paris.

Also spent quite a bit of time with some of the homeless people in Paris – there is an ongoing demonstration to try to improve the public housing situation for these people. To attract attention to the issue an NGO has provided tents to the homeless folk and they set them up along the Canal du Saint Martin where they extremely visible. It had been getting a lot of media attention while i was there and will hopefully achieve positive results. Here’s a pic of Frank with his new mate who joined the crew at christmas….




…and here’s Gavroche hanging out in his tent…
