Still a little way before arriving in Central Paris.

I don't know how you could avoid red belt, it is the case of pretty much every municipalities around.
I didn't understand where it is... I thought Montreuil or somewhere in Eastern suburbs

Anyway it would be very interesting to have a map with the whole run brisavoine did, once reached central Paris
Nice thread though: it would be nice to make something similar for other cities

No no, the Tour de France has never used the route I have selected. They use another route to cross Greater Paris.

Honestly it's hard to find a European city, with more than 1 mil people, which differs from this suburb's layout.

No Montreuil is more urban and nowaday Montreuil is not anymore communist.
It is the Green khmers (aka ecologist party) that have the power in Montreuil.

After a few days of well deserved rest in the paradise of socialisme réel, it's time to resume our journey to the heart of Paris. Don't worry though, the transition from socialisme réel to the rotten and decadent bourgeois heart of Paris will be a slow and smooth one, which means we will only be gradually leaving our Socialist paradise. For a few more kilometers, you will still be spared the horrors of globalized shark capitalism. We will even be passing by a place called the Kremlin (I swear I'm not making this up!).

Km 34.0: We're now driving on Boulevard de Stalingrad. As the name implies, we're still in Communist la-la land.
[img]http://i50.************/s42grl.jpg[/img]

Km 34.5: Stalin: 1 - Haussmann: 0
Perhaps this is how Central Paris would look today if most of it had been bombed out by the Germans during WW2.
[img]http://i45.************/23sj51e.jpg[/img]

Km 35.0: Still driving on Boulevard de Stalingrad, although the name Boulevard Mao would have been more appropriate, given how the area has been colonized by the Chinese (Chinese import-export warehouse to the right of the picture).
[img]http://i50.************/ht5gyx.jpg[/img]

Km 35.0: (looking left: some interesting architecture in this otherwise greyish Communist land)
[img]http://i49.************/24cyt6r.jpg[/img]

Km 35.5: The motto of that tow truck company to the right of the street is "Le service bleu, blanc, rouge". Now that's a patriotic company!
[img]http://i50.************/wj76s1.jpg[/img]

Km 35.5: (close-up view)
A good sample of the ethnic diversity in Greater Paris: an Asian (Oriental) couple, a Black guy, and three old White people who could very well be Portuguese, Spanish or Italian immigrants, given the neighborhood we're in. That ethnic diversity is what people call "Black, blanc, beur" (a pun on "bleu, blanc, rouge").
[img]http://i46.************/2vcud54.jpg[/img]

Km 36.0:
[img]http://i47.************/2i0rw2v.jpg[/img]

Km 36.5:
[img]http://i48.************/dnha9l.jpg[/img]

Km 37.0:
[img]http://i48.************/v5y96w.jpg[/img]

Km 37.5: A pool hall to the right of the avenue. I bet you had never seen a pool hall in Paris before.
[img]http://i50.************/28ahi4n.jpg[/img]

Km 38.0:
[img]http://i47.************/2cmnrxd.jpg[/img]

To be continued... Still no trace of Haussmannia-land...

Great thread! It's nice seeing all the faces of Paris, not just those from a photographer's lens. It just goes to show you that a place is usually nothing what you expect it to look like when you actually see it with your own eyes (or in this case, through the help of Google Street view )

Ah... entering Paris through Porte d'Italie

So the commie land is Villejuif; I know it is too easy to say it now, but it was my second guess after Montreuil

Ok... it is Vitry-sur-Seine... it was my third guess

Ok, it wasn't

I was sure about Villejuif because I recognized Porte d'Italie, given away by the unmistakable silhouette of Tour Superitalie

Vitry-sur-Seine exist, it is next to Ivry-sur-Seine.
Anyway all these tiny municiplaities many with ridiculous name, some like Kremlin, Villejuif, Joinville, Champigny sur Marne, Chaville...etc should be renomed in one single big city.

The name of this single city..... Paris
