Ever smelled a burning car?

Baghdad or Grenoble?

Baghdad or Grenoble?

Then there’s the popular passtime in France of burning cars. Was awoken at 4:30 am to the smell of heavy toxic fumes (windows open of course with this heat). Thought we were all goners, i.e. appartment building in flames, but luckily it turned out to be just a burning car, about a block down. Frequency of this kind of fun depends on the neighborhood; here they say it’s once a year or so. We’ll see. Anyway, it’s absolutely horrid and toxic, but not surprising given the proclivity to burning in this country by “respectable” people, along with their general lack of respect for rules and other people.
