In le Jardin des Tuileries, there is a carnival along the rue de Rivoli.
Susie, I thought you'd like this clown with a saxophone.
Yes, we are in France.
It's a little roller coaster!
This fair, like most contemporary carnivals, demonstrates many creative uses of fiberglass. This guy was really big.
This was the first food stand that I saw.
This is in its perfect context.
This is rad, no matter where. I should go eat there tomorrow, just because I can.
Update: those churros tasted like old oil, had no cinnamon, and no creaminess inside. California churros have much better flavor and texture!
The games have interesting prizes-- cell phones, digital cameras, and other electronics. These prizes seem even more inaccessible than the stuffed animals in the rigged carnival games that I'm used to.
