I passed by one of the new South Beach rental bicycle racks just after the bikes were installed last week. A few years back my wife and I took advantage of the same system in Paris, and I have a photo of the bicycles lined up on a street in the Montmartre neighborhood. Thought the comparison was interesting in terms of style, and rifled through some old photos to see if I had any other Paris-Miami contrasts. Turns out there were a few, which I present here. Draw your own conclusions.
One of these is a photo of the new South Beach bicycles, the other is from Paris. Can you tell which is which?
One of these is dinner on a Continental flight out of Miami, the other on an Air France flight returning to Miami:
