One of the joys of riding around Paris on the metro is to me at least the many busking musicians playing in many stations - and these are not just any ole folks throwing down their hats and playing - but who have to be officially licensed to be awarded one of 300 official buskers allowed to perform at any metro station.
Of course there are also renegade buskers at times - the article points out the ubiquitous accordion players that board trains and illegally play.
Interesting the article says the Chatelet is the world's largest underground station.
