10/19 - Chaos in Paris

Last week I was in Paris to visit the trade show IPA. No good time to visit Paris, because due to the strikes there were most of the gas stations closed, the ones which're opened only gave out limited fuel... and waiting time was approximately 2 hrs.

The trade show itself was very interesting for me, I'd some good conversations....

After day 1 I took the chance to make a lil sight seeing trip through the city... the tank was full and the first filling included in the price of the rental car.

Just have a look at the pix, then you know where I'd been....

I was in a hotel in Clichy and unfortunately there was no location around to go for a smoke, so I had to go to the heated patio of the hotel.... there I smoked a BBF on Tuesday in honor of the founder of the cigar board called ICC who died two years ago.

 R.I.P. Larry - this BBF was smoked in your honor

For places to smoke I got some recommendations when I came back, so I can take care of them the next time...
