Piscine Josephine Baker



Here are some shots of my Paris trip last week, including scenes of the lovely curvy new wooden footbridge over the eastern Seine, connecting Bercy to the Mitterand library. Just to the right of the bridge is the new floating swimming pool, the Piscine Josephine Baker. You can easily walk from here into the 13th arrondissement Chinatown, where me, Toog and Flo (whose flat you can also see here) ended up trying on big festival masks at tacky-gorgeous Chinese superstore Tang Freres.

Momus trivia question: which of my songs mentions Josephine Baker, and what's the connection with making things float?
