Graffiti in St-Germain

This graffiti certainly stands out on from the rest of this small road in St-Germain.

If you were thinking of using the insurer MACIF,

maybe you should think again. Apparently punctually resolving claims isn't its strong point. The sign reads "The accident was May 12, we're insured by MACIF!"
Short and sweet, it certainly makes its point: the sign is hanging firm, over four months after the initial fire. This antique/thrift shop in the 6th closes up at night by putting boards through the window panes.  I don't know the story behind the fire, whose damage reaches up to the first floor of the building and on either sides of it, but I hope that MACIF will come through soon enough for the owners.

Serious question

Where can I find seedless grapes (besides Atac and Auchan)? Just wondering if anyone out there has seen any.

Real posts on the way, promise.

Oh, also, all the gyms/salles de yoga and pilates are EXORBITANT. I was just quoted 185/month for a gym. It took all my willpower not to laugh out loud. Does anyone have any experience taking classes at the municipal sport/loisirs centres?
