Champs Elysées: Going Vert

The BBC recently profiled a story about the Champs Elysées being covered in tiny plots of land, transformed by French farmers. For two days, the honking of Citroens was replaced by the baying of donkeys. The Jeunes Agriculteurs (Young Farmers) union organized last-weekend's event to underscore the plight of French farmers. Leave it to the French to make plight look pleasing...

Can you imagine the unassuming tourist popping off the Metro to visit the Arc de Triomphe only to find the streets covered in grass, the Parc de Triomphe, if you will.
