Today, I'm going to give you a brief overview of the stock market.

Global markets tumbled on Monday, with European stocks falling the most since July as investors worried about tighter virus restrictions and a report detailing suspicious transactions at international banks.

S&P 500 equity futures sank 1.8%, indicating U.S. stocks are poised to extend three weeks of losses. Political tensions also making traders nervous as Republicans and Democrats prepare to fight over who will be the next Supreme Court justice. Treasuries rose and the dollar strengthened.
In France equities are down too, as the cac 40 is dropping 3.35%.

Airlines and travel companies led losses in the Europe Stoxx 600 Index.
Nikola Corp. plunged 36% in U.S. pre-market trading. The electric-vehicle startup that recently partnered with General Motors Co. said its founder stepped down as executive chairman.

I doubt humbert has been to the 11 arrondissement because it's popular and not very touristy.

I didn't know anything about arrondissements during my visit. Besides going to the Champs Elysées, I visited Jim Morrison's grave (my partner wanted to see it). I also visited the Louvre, mostly because I wanted to see the Mona Lisa. Leonardo is one of my historical heroes. I don't remember where the hotel was, only that it was a 2 or 3 star hotel with a 5 star price (by US standards). One thing I absolutely loved about Paris is the Métro and, of course, the fact that you don't need a car. I also observed that, contrary to everything I'd been hearing, Parisians are very nice and not rude nor arrogant. Naturally there are exceptions, I just didn't run into any.

Maybe you have recognized the place of Republic and the 11th arrondissement. (The Eiffel tower was shot on the bridge of Garigliano in the 16th arrondissement).
I doubt humbert has been to the 11 arrondissement because it's popular and not very touristy.
I was there because in the Avenue Parmentier lies one of the last Videoclubs of Paris. Since laptops are not sold with DVD player any more, their activity is more and more threatened.
I was there to rent a movie titled "le Bel âge", also known as "Restless" in the USA, and released in 2009. I'm currently making a dvdrip, with English subtitles. While the original DVD is 4:3, I converted it to 16:9. I'll try to upload it for the forum soon.
The last pictures are showing some "Bandai" figures. If we can recognize Vegeta and Picolo, who are the others ? Maybe Vasudev or shadow.97 know the answer.

Tonight, new photos taken today in Paris are available on the forum.
You can try to examine those photos.

On the Parisian periphérique. I'm still using my old car despite a leaking head gasket. I'm afraid of breaking down in a place like this.
Maybe I should have stayed in Saint Etienne, humbert was right. and if I'm winning the lottery, I promise Maher I will go to Palestine (with this car).

The Eiffel tower, as seen from the bridge of Garigliano, in the 16th arrondissement.

The Boulevard Exelmans, as seen from the bridge of Garigliano.

Some towers, in La défense.

Some graffiti, near Avenue Parmentier

Those street art artists have a lot of talent. Could it be Bansky?

The Place of Republic. It's Saturday, and the place is overcrowded.

It seems some activists who want the liberation of Palestine are present. Apparently they advise to boycott Israel. No more Tahini butter cookies, no more Sabich sandwich.

I guess usman and humbert know this game. It's the first time I see something like this, probably a mini table football.

Some buildings and some graffiti, on the boulevard Voltaire.

A Bandai shop.

Some "Bandai" figures. We can recognize Vegeta and Piccolo.

Who are they ? Maybe Vasudev or shadow.97 know the answer.

Some books, in a book shop. Note that Book shop is translated in French as "librairie", but the word library has a different meaning.

I bought the book on the left.
The thought-provoking “When the forest is burning: reflection on the new ecological disaster” explains how recent forest fires reveal the need to rethink our relation to the environment in order to achieve a sustainable future. Political philosopher and environmental studies expert Joëlle Zask studies the conditions necessary for democracy and a sustainable political and social system. To watch her discuss  the keys to implementing change and what it feels like to live amid both despair and hope, you can watch the video here:

You know that I am teleworking because ( or thanks to) of the Covid19. If I can finish my work tomorrow, maybe I will go to the 8th arrondissement on Saturday.
Humbert already knows the champs Elysées, but I didn't take many photos of the adjacent streets. Or maybe I'll take some photos elsewhere.

Maybe you remember the photos of Fauchon and the blond waitress, taken in 2015 here:
Well, this store is going to close. Fauchon, one of France's most luxurious food outlets, is to close two flagship shops in Paris, blaming the combined effects of the coronavirus and months of yellow vests protests. 700,000 salaried jobs were already lost in the first half of the year.
A court confirmed the closure of the shops in the up-market Place de la Madeleine in the heart of the capital, where it has operated since it first opened 134 years ago.
The closures, which will mean the loss of 77 jobs, leave the historic company with its hotel, Grand Café and a tea shop in Paris, on top of a global network of 73 shops.
In normal times, Fauchon is major draw for well-heeled tourists from around the world. But the luxury grocers announced in June that its Paris operations would go into administration to get them back on their feet. Its sales were hit badly not just by the months-long closures imposed by the coronavirus lockdown earlier this year, but by the "yellow vest" anti-government protests of 2018-2019 and strikes over pension reforms this winter.
