Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_01 : Scorff River, Brittany

One last comment on the ride from CDG to Orly. The shuttle takes the peripheral autoroutes. These are lined with sound barrier walls. Every square inch of these walls was covered with grafitti. Paris, your dirty laundry is showing and it is ugly. In the distance, the Eiffel Tower still gleamed through the smog. At the various exits, the landscape grounds are now encrusted with shanty hamlets, home to economic vagrants. Tall apartment builings, solutions for social housing, had all their windows broken and yet people still lived in them. After that depressing landscape, it was a relief when the clouds parted over Brittany. We were on approach to Lorient and this is the river Scorff.

Oh my first reaction was, "Pretty!" Then I read your blurb and I reiterate, "Pretty!" Stupid government.

Depressing as hell - Britain too.
