Annoying Vegans Block Paris Traffic
We’re staying on what in Paris is the 6th floor and what in America would be the 7th (the first floor here is counted as zero), but we still heard this awful noise yesterday afternoon.
It sounded like really horrible “music,” with people yelling, but it actually just turned out to be people yelling in a “manifestation” — a protest against eating meat and wearing fur.
They were marching down the major street, Boulevard St. Germain, blocking everybody in cars or buses from getting anywhere. Assholes. That’ll show all of us.
This guy did have a cute dog and kind of a similar snout himself:

Luckily, the noise and annoyance and the subject matter served as a reminder that we needed to pick up some more paté later — which we did:
Now, I wouldn’t suggest eating fur (it’s murder on the mouth), but I do highly recommend paté (with a few cornichons on the side).
