Vehicles of Paris: Part 17
It's been awhile since I've posted about vehicles but I've got a few more coming. Most visitors to Paris are aware of the bateaux mouche, the tour boats you can take up and down the Seine. But the Seine is not just a sightseeing destination; it's a real working river with lots of cargo going to and fro. Not sure whether this boat is carrying coal, asphalt or something else. One thing I know for sure: it does not have a commentary in several languages.
Note: The bridge in the background of this photo, Pont Bir Hakeim, is one of my favorites, not because it's so pretty or historic but because Metro line 6 comes above ground to traverse the river there and gives you a terrific view of the Eiffel Tower.
