Wednesday Postcard: Saint-Cloud, France

Bonjour! I got this week’s carte postale from an online shop. It’s from Saint-Cloud, which is located in a suburb about 10 km/ 6.2 miles west of Paris:

The Grande Cascades are located in Parc de Saint-Cloud

Fun Facts

  • Parts of Sinéad O’Connor’s video for “Nothing Compares 2 U” were filmed in Parc de Saint-Cloud
  • Just south of Parc de Saint-Cloud, in Sèvres, the global standard for the exact mass of one kilogram is housed in a vault at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, à bientôt!
