Horses

Friends around for a couple of days… Sorry, no time for blogging or visiting your blogs; just one photo today.

The other day I saw for the first time some horse riding policemen verbalizing. Normally I would expect to see policemen on horses only during parades… or possibly riots.

I wish you a nice weekend!

Peter, I am amazed how fast you work to bring us more and more pictures and so much information! Have a great weekend, too!
Take care.

Beautiful horses - I can't imagine them in Paris!
The propriétaire does not look happy.....

Enjoy your friends and your weekend!!

In Colombo, they are used for traffic control as well.

Ah, this is what I call drive-by to the eatery for a take-away! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Shionge said...

Better not to 'horse' around with them right? :) You have a great weekend.

Qui ramasse les crottes?

Ah ah, HPY et son esprit pratique, j'adore! Je vois souvent des policiers à cheval aux alentours du quai des Orfèvres mais je ne savais pas qu'ils pouvaient verbaliser. Leur capital sympathie va en prendre un coup!
Bon week end!

Adam said...

Peter - you're not allowed to take photos of the police! :-)

I've never seen the police on horseback in Paris, but it's very common in the UK.

Bettina said...

This is really a great photo - I like it very much.
Have a nice weekend with your guests, I hope it's possible for you to get around Paris inspite of the demonstrations.

Ruth said...

I wonder what they're talking about.

Happy weekend!

So is the shop owner trying to buy one of the horses? Dinner maybe?

Peter,

It's been so long that I've been in Paris and reading your postings and seeing the beautiful vivid pictures reminds me what a lovely city this is.

Great to follow.

Thank you for that, very well done.

Have a good day,
Me

This is the first time I read your blog. Congratulations is really an interesting blog.

Regarding the picture, I had never seen mounted police in Paris. I have only seen this kind of policemen in New York and in Madrid.

I love anything and everything French. In 2001 I lived in Paris for 5 months as a college student studying abroad at la Sorbonne. I love seeing your photos of Paris. If you ever happen to go by Rue Victor Cousin (right next to la Sorbonne and only a couple blocks from le Pantheon), I'd love to see a picture of number 9 Rue Victor Cousin. Paris holds special memories for me :)

Horses tend to make the city more pleasant.

منطقی ترین و بهترین روش بدست آوردن پول از اینترنت

امروزه سیستم های کلیکی کدهایی را به شما می دهند تا هروقت روی آن کلیک شود مقداری پول به شما داده شود از هر 10 کلیک بر روی تبلیغات شما 5 عدد از آن تبلیغات به فرروش می رسد

اگر هر کلیک را 100 تومان حصاب کنیم 10 کلیک 1000تومان می شود

اما اگر از سیستم پورسانت گیری استفاده کنید با 5 فروش حداعقل کم کم درآمد شما 10000تومان می شود

در ضمن شما می توانید با توجه به محتوای سایت خود تبلیغات را انتخاب کنید اگر سایت شما مربوط به کتاب است کتاب ها را بفروش بگذارید اگر وسایل ورزشی است وسایل ورزشی را به فروش بگذارید

ولی اگر در سیستم بزرگ شرکت ثبت شده پایگان عضو شوید و تبلیغات آنها را به نمایش بگذارید با همان 10 کلیک و 5 فروش می توانید 40 تا 60 درصد بستگی به محصول دارد قیمت 5 محصول فروخته شده را بدست بیاورید اگر شما 5 فروش داشته باشید و بطور متوسط قیمت هر محصول 5 هزارتومان باشد درآمد شما 10000تومان می شود

شما با پیدا کردن عضو 10 درصد پول از فروش عضو خود را میگیرید این 10 درصد پول از حساب عضو شما کم نمی شود بلکه پاداش شرکت به شما است

Congrats on being a "Blog of Note!" I've seen police on horses quite a few times. I just took a shot of some in Madrid, but it's not nearly as good as this one!

Peter que voilà une récompense complètement méritée ! Je suis vraiment ravie que tu soies Blog of Note !!!!

Je n'ai encore jamais vu de police montée à Paris. Là j'imagine bien le cuisinier leur disant : "je me suis fait cambrioler, poursuivez le voleur !"

On ne peut que remercier Google d’avoir mentionné votre blog (bien mérité), que je viens de découvrir.
J’ai habité Paris il y a déjà longtemps. En parcourant vos post, textes, photos, plans, j’ai l’impression d’y vivre encore. C’est une grande joie d’y refaire de belles et vivantes promenades.
J’ai connu la police montée à Vancouver et Calgary mais pas encore à Paris. Je penserai à vous à l’occasion.
Merci et bonne continuation.

Thank you for sharing such wonderful photos of Paris. Europe makes history come alive and it is so exciting and revealing of cultures and how we came to the places and people we are today!
