yeah true ! also i would say in almost all pictures where people appear u can see a black (often in suit) or an asian, yeaaaah !

@ Chicagoflo : for me too a lot of pix does not show, maybe i can see only half of them...but i admit my broadband connection is not as fast as western countries DSL (although it's not low speed neither)

You see a lot of Mc Donalds... because these are commercials district, where there is crowd.
Kony, Paris is very diverse, it is rare to not a see a black or an asian (impossible in these commercial districts) in a crowd.

great thread minato, now if you could take photos of Belleville it would be awsome I think it's the best multicultural district of the whole urban area.

French Fried Chicken, I like that.

Great pictures, they show a vibrant side of Paris aside from the tourist traps. Just wondering, how many British live in the city?

Damn, some Parisian businessmen seem to have a really dazzling style I'm just jealous...



Btw, you showed up some really fancy impressions of Paris Minato, quite sapidly. I just hope that they'll stop to signpost the whole city with all those stupid global emporia.
