Paris Shanty Town

We had our niece visiting us last week and my wife had a ball showing her around Paris. We escorted her to CDG on Sunday to make sure she didn't have any issues at check in and then my wife and I caught the train back into the city.

When we were passing through the area of Le Bourget (where the old airport was and now a large industrial area) I noticed a couple of areas where squatters had erected plywood shantys along the side of the railroad tracks. I didn't have time to get a picture but I was amused to see that several of these shantys had satellite dishes on them. I guess they can't do without their MTV.
