HANGING IN THE BALANCE

UPDATED: 05/07/12
Today, the people of France head to the polls for their second of two presidential elections. Their next president will be known after tonight's votes are counted. 
The vote will provide the French take on European austerity measures. 

These measures have been, and are being enacted - allegedly - to avert economic disaster for the Euro currency due to the Global Recession. The outcome of this vote will give the Eurozone (and the world) much needed insight as it plots its next collective steps.

Not really interested in getting into French politics... except to say that austerity is never the solution in my book.

"En solidarité," I offer instead this glide through Paris... in six minutes.

Enjoy.
