with the palace of Versailles in the background and I almost got run
over while crossing the street. I had waited for the the green
light...at least I thought I had.
I am pretty sure the sign I took a picture of says something like
"Attention walkers, crossing is in 2 stages." I figured it out when I
looked at the sign rather than the green crossing light. I did have a
green crossing light but only for the "first" part of my crossing.
The "second part" of my crossing had a red light. Mind you there was
no sidewalk to wait on, just lots of cars and buses going by. I am
not sure that I have ever seen this configuration before or perhaps I
have just been lucky and not gotten run over. Anyway, no harm done,
and the leaves were amazing; once I learned how to cross the street.`
