BlogMoi: The Bus Sans Destination
Last week I posted my submission to BlogMoi Paris. Since it’s is in French, I thought it’d be a good idea to post an English translation of it here so those of you who don’t speak French can understand. You can find the original post, and VOTE right here.
The title of the project is “Le Bus Sans Destination” or “The Bus Without Direction” : A bus ride, any number, any direction to discover Paris by chance.
Once upon a time I went on a date. The guy was not memorable, but the rendezvous, oui!
It all started in the 7th arrondisement near Ecole Militaire. We took a bus at random without thinking about where we were headed. Near the Luxembourg Gardens we decided to get off. We found a cafe to have a drink and people watch until deciding to take another bus. We ran to catch the next bus, not knowing where it was headed. We continued to talk and figure out exactly where this bus was headed. . . Towards the 10th [arrondisement], Strasbourg Saint-Denis. Passage Brady is around there – pourquoi pas? . . . After a dinner of Indian food, it was time to find another bus to continue our journey. . .
My project I propose is a series where each week I would take a bus ride, any number, any direction to discover Paris by chance. As someone who almost always take the metro, this will be a way to explore the city above ground. The project will be documented with my iPhone through photography, the possibility of video / time lapse, in a somewhat experimental style.
The site is foiling my plans for French domination by making people register in order to vote for the projects. If signing up is too complicated, I invite you to Facebook “like” Le Bus Sans Destination or share it on Twitter. This is my chance to be one of Paris.fr 3 main city bloggers!
