Favorite FIA Parisian Scenes

FIA is not only a « tour de force » of the French language, but it is also a grand tour of the most beautiful city in the world – Paris. Each of us fans probably has several sights and sounds from the series that are most memorable. Two of my favorites are the Fontaine Medicis in Luxembourg Garden:

… and the Stravinsky Fountain near Centre Georges Pompidou:

(Maybe I have a thing for fountains.)

I am very fortunate to be able to live in Paris much of the year. If you have a favorite scene that you would like posted, I’ll do my best to add it here.


.. and here’s the Eiffel Tower requested by Old FIA Fan:

  6. Ask, and ye shall receive… (Though it’s not an early morning shot.)


  7. Hi, Thank you. Thank you. Last spring I had a new interest in studying French again. While looking for web resources I found the Fancy Robot thread. I sent Liliana Segura an email thanking her. She didn’t answer. About two weeks later the thread disappeared without explanation. I tried to find it without success. Last week I accidentally deleted all my bookmarks, so tonight I was putting together new French bookmarks and I stumbled upon your site. It’s wonderful. Thank you. And thanks for the links–particularly the one to the Fancy Robot archive. And now that I’ve thanked you, I hope you stay around for longer than two weeks.


  8. Cher TexanInParis,

    My favorite view in the world is of the Eiffel Tower from the Trocadero / Palais de Chaillot (either in the morning or lit up at night). The next time you’re in the area, can you please snap a photo?

    Merci beaucoup…
