Euro Quiz # 61 - Paris (n'est pas) Pourri!

Jump to last reply

All above gay Paree! (When I used this title once for a potpourri article about Paris without the "n'est pas" in it - it was pointed out that Paris Pourri translated as "Paris stinks"!

1- Paris has three Tram lines - T-1; T-2; T-3 - generally where do they run - don't need specfic point to point but where are they?

2- These two Paris metro lines were built roughly following the course of the old Paris city walls - they uniquely for Paris feature stretches of track and several stations above ground - makes a lovely ride at night when the streets below are all lit!

3- Where in Paris can you see a shirt once owned by Elvia Presley?

4- Where can you see Faucault's original pendulum still swinging?

5- The famous short movie The Red Balloon was largely shot in which Paris district?

6- Where in the Paris area can you pay homage to Rin Tin Tin, the dog (his/her grave)?

7- Hector Guimand left his Art Nouveau stamp on what still prominent streetside features?

8- In recent decades Paris, to combat a doggie dropping epidemic on its sidewalks and streets came up with doggie toilets on the street - what are the called or nicknamed and why was this name used? (Play on words).

9- At Joinville-le-Pont, a near eastern suburb, there is a short cut between what two navigable rivers and how is it done (maybe the name Joinville comes from this?)?

10- There is an outdoor statue garden along the Seine - where is it?

Merci au revoir!
