Looking at the Map

Heading back to the 5th Arrondissement from a noon-time concert in the 18th, we had to change buses at Gare de l’Est. At the entrance to the Metro station there, the prominent subway map begs perusal. But if you’ve ever studied the Paris Metro map, it is a twisted net of different colored lines: pink, green, aqua, red, blue, orange, etc. I saw this woman’s coiffure and nearly jumped out of my skin! How perfect a juxtaposition! Just take the red line, transfer to the orange, change to the aqua, go two stops and you’re there.
