I had to hurry through Chatou two days ago and now I’m relieved that I’m able to come back and parkbench it properly.  But I almost miss it a second time…

 

Foolishly I decide to skip taking my video clip in the little downtown area and head on north to look for something else that’s interesting.  After walking along ways with no park or plaza anywhere, I reach a high rise apartment district… and then a couple of factories… and that’s the end of the road…

 

I simply am not in the mood to embarrass myself by pulling out my guitar and camera and taking a video clip in front of a factory or a crowded apartment building… nor do I want to hike all the way back to downtown to take a proper video clip there…

 

So I just wander around for a bit, looking for anywhere that I might take my clip… Finally I find an ugly little park in the middle of an apartment complex and figure that’ll have to do…

 

It seems that due to the industrial complex on the northside there isn’t a road directly to Montesson, the next suburb on up, so I end up having to make a big, frustrating loop through a wasteland of empty fields of brambles and farms…


My first frustrating Paris suburb… but oh well…
