When I visited Paris last month for the first time, Ive noticed that big ads dominate the walls of METRO - the railway system of the city of lights! In this particular ad, I was not really sure of what the image is all about without reading the French phrase below. It was a clever shot that promotes a French region, Aquitaine which is located in the southwestern side of France. This region is famous for its brand of wine such as Armagnac, Bordeaux (Claret in the UK) and Bergerac.

This is an iconic urban element especially for Chinese people as their main public transport in the country. It is a surprise for me when I saw this in an European city. It is the transport for sustainable urban communities: eco-environmentally friendly carbon-free transport which is visibly found in the high streets of Paris. The French government introduced this bike transity system known as "Velib" last year (2007) as a new self-service to allow people (including tourists) to to pick up and drop off bikes throughout the city at 1,451 locations and 20,600 bikes.
