For all the fun I've had taking photos of Paris, there are sound and scent memories I want for my scrapbook as well. Eh voila. Thanks to the Freesound Project, I've been able to find sound files of some of those little things that will always conjure up Paris for me. (Regrettably after much surfing, I cannot find the perfect recording of French ladies talking.) So put on your headphones and listen to:
the SNCF jingle which precedes all announcements in French train stations (and yes, I know that this wasn't recorded in Paris.)
The sounds of riding on the metro including the clunk of the doors and the woosh as the train gathers speed.
And then over on YouTube, I found this silly clip with the often heard metro announcement, "Attention à la marche en descendant du train."
What's your favorite Paris sound?
