Day 15    

   We stopped at Laduree nearby to try the macarons in both praline and raspberry flavors for 18 F each. Completely unlike an American macaroon these are two baked "sandwich's" with a flavor filling inside and worth a try when you see some that are fresh.
 
Just off of Concord is Laduree, for pastries

   Next it was off to see the newest Metro line built in about 60 years, Line 14.
   Now I have to admit, I'm easy to impress because Seattle has no Metro or subway (and probably never will) and I was dazzled by the Paris Metro when I was 12 years old, but this was something else.
 
  I think there's been generations of young men, from various parts of the world who've grown up dreaming of becoming a Metro driver.


   So what do they do? They all sit at the front when riding Line 14 looking out the window.

   With no drivers and fully automatic trains, there's a large front window so you can see straignt down the tunnel, which of course leads to a theory of mine.
 
Yes siree, the front of any carriage of Line 14 is a seething, teeming, cauldron of hetrosexual testosterone, just waiting to see a kind smile.
