The beginning part of "grandpa on a ventilator" was my favorite. ;)

So if I've got this right back in XV111 Paris, the French were invisible. 8-)

#3 : that's what I meant in the description by "incomplete". It would have been interesting to have some people, but I guess it's too much of additional work.

This is an excellent video, even though there are no people in it, the sounds of that time lets you imagine easily what is not there.

I don't think the streets would be that tidy either, there would have been a lot of pooh and whis around not to mention. The French were not known for their sanitation, still not in parts lol. O:)
