Newsletter April 2014
In vain the ruling Socialist wished was a real Poisson d'Avril, too bad, the Municipal Elections were not a real Poisson d' Avril for ruling Socialists. The Socialists lost about 150 town-halls (at the time of this writing the exact number is unclear) with a population of over 9,000 and saw the Front National (FN) win Hénin-Beaumont in the first round, winning 50.5% of the vote in a once Socialist stronghold.

TGV Train Travel
My preferred means for getting around France is by train. The train system in France is very efficient with trains running throughout the day on most lines. Paris acts as the hub, with just about all-major lines connecting through it.

Fuel efficiency in continental Europe is measured in liters consumed per 100 km, which is the inverse of the UK/US standard miles per gallon.
