I am going to Paris the city of lights, Street fire lights from gasoline with cars on fire and rioting. It's like WTO in Seattle all over again. Should I get a fireproof coat and camera bag. I won't be using a tripod, mine is made of wood. We saved for years to go there and visit the museums and sites and what do you know the country is in a mess. Welcome to the world. Two schools destroyed and more cars burned today and it is a huge national crisis. It appears to be spreading to other countries as well. There hasn't been a curfew in France since the 1960's. My heart goes out to the good people there.
