    No, my car burnt 2 months ago...
    I'm now a strong advocate of bikes.

    This picture was taken near the European district of Strasbourg (not a poor suburb). In the day I saw on the floor the marks of 5 burnt cars 100 meters from each other. In the night I also saw an old man who succeeded to stop the begining of a fire in his car (he took a big risk for his life).


    What scares me the most is that the cars are near houses ...

    A month ago, I also saw 2 cars burning before the riots.It's always very surprising to see that the manufacturers don't choose non-inflammable parts (the seats burn incredibly well).

    France has become a sad place.

    Seen from NYC, the situation is becoming quite complex to handle in France.
    Hope the only victims will be cars :(
