Marcher!



If it's your first time to experience Métro Abbesses, then by all means march right up the zillion steps to the very top. Along the way you will be delighted to have many colorful murals to amuse you while you draw your (last?) breath.  On the other hand, if you've been there and done that, take the lift IF it's working.

I think I would need a colourful diversion to assist my ascent V.

I see Michou on the right with blue glasses!What he is doing here?!

Harriet said...

I avoid Metro Chatelet like the plague, now I see I should add this one as well. (From your comment, it seems that the lift has a history of not working.)

Liene said...

Are they keeping time to my stepping or are they laughing at me? :) At least it's colorful...

Virginia said...

Malyss, I thought Johnny Hollyday! :)

Kate said...

The lift seems to be a pretty sensible alternative altho I'd miss the joy of the visuals.

At least you have something to look at on the stairs other than blank wall. Pretty.

I trudged up those damn stairs and I never saw these. Not a one! Maybe they're new since my visit... I love it!

VP said...

The last time I saw this, it was all scribbled over...

Alexa said...

Ouf! Worth trudging up these stairs once, anyway—with a camera in hand. From then on, you can hope for a functioning elevator!

This is Belgium said...

Yes of course it is our Belgian Johnny!
(not sure, really ;) )
I think it is a fabulous mural anyhow

James said...

It's been a while since I've walked up those steps but I knew it was Abbesses the moment I saw it.

Malyss is right it's definitely Michou. I'll take all wagers. ;-)

Jack said...

OK, I'll walk up the stairs. Maybe slowly, but I can do it!

Karen Albert said...

I would certainly attempt the steps Virginia, Wonderful murals!

I remember that climb from the days when I could walk up. It is one of the most attractive mètro stations.
