Very nice pictures, I enjoyed watching them. They give me a good feeling.

Although I must say, the Sacré Coeur de Gentilly (church in Gentilly) is the most ugly and frightening church in the world. I remember it taking a walk in the evening in Gentilly: thought I was in hell.

I took a journey through Marne-la Vallée's suburbia (30-35 km east of Paris centre), very kitsch and exotic for a parisian. I was also amazed by the number of Asiatic immigrants who lived in these districts. The area around Disneyland is a sort of "French" Celebration.












Golf courses are their public gardens.


































Two cars per house is the norm.

Thanks for the kind comments.

@ Bristol Mike : The districts in the photos are high-class, and not representative of Paris' suburban sprawl, which is normally more messy.

Where is the 1st pic in post #34 taken?

Also, in the 1st pic of post #23 you almost captured the aqueduct of Cachan and Arcueil. It's too bad because that aqueduct is quite an ignored historical monument that consists of 3 parts: the main and upper 19th c. portion made of Meulière stone like some houses in the suburbs, the middle portion from the 17th c. (ordered by Marie de Medicis) and the small and buttom portion dating back to gallo-roman times. I can't believe such a historical monument which is more important than most monuments inside Paris does not appear in guide books listing monuments in Greater Paris.

If you don't mind, I'll just show an image from Wikipedia Commons so people know what I'm talking about but again, you almost captured it in the 1st pic of post #23.

@Edubejar

It's quite surprising you paid attention to the aqueduct of Cachan.
If you are interested in such structure, there is one another, quite "famous", near Paris : The aqueduct of Buq : http://fr.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0001988

And two big viaducs, architecturaly quite poor...
The one of Nogent sur Marne
http://fr.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0002146
the one of Meudon
http://fr.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0002858

(looking at those informations, I found some pictures of the Cachan Aqueduct http://www.flickr.com/photos/comment...7614982255760/
and those pictures of housing near the structure... one is reusing the roman ruins http://www.culture.gouv.fr/culture/r...vre/bd/bd1.htm )

(and near the one of Nogent, you can see some nice art nouveau buildings http://www.architecture-nogent.fr/rubrique-immeuble.htm
and an Isba
)

It's just some little houses in front of a 6-storey building, which is owned by the railway company SNCF, here.

It's a dead-end on the eastern side of rue de L'atlas, in the centre of this map.


There's a close-up of the aqueduct of Cachan (part of the "aqueduc de la Vanne", which ends in Montsouris reservoirs) in post #12 :
