  • Description

    DOUBLE DECKER BUSES APPEARED IN THE STREETS OF PARIS TODAY (JUNE 19) FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NEARLY 60 YEARS. IT'S A TRIAL OPERATION AND DREW MIXED REACTION FROM PASSENGERS.

    MANY WORLD CAPITALS HAVE HAD DOUBLE DECKER BUSES FOR YEARS BUT THE FRENCH REACTION WAS: "IT MAKES ME GIDDY. IT ROCKS AROUND AND IT'S UNCOMFORTABLE."
    "YOU CAN SEE INTO PEOPLE'S FIRST FLOOR ROOMS, AND THAT'S INTERESTING," SAID ANOTHER.

    THERE ARE 25 BUSES ON ROUTE 94 OF WHICH GOES FROM MONTPARNASSE ON THE LEFT BANK TO THE SUBURB OF LEVALLOIS ON THE RIGHT. PARIS LAST HAD DOUBLE DECKER BUSES IN 1912 AND ON THAT OCCASION WOMEN WERE FORBIDDEN TO TRAVEL UPSTAIRS - LEST ASCENDING MALE PASSENGERS CAUGHT SIGHT OF A PRETTY PAIR OF ANKLES. BUT NO SUCH RESTRICTIONS APPLY TODAY WITH MINI SKIRTS MAKING THE THIGH THE LIMIT.

    PLASTIC ROOFS GIVE TOURISTS AN IDEAL VANTAGE POINT.
