Note to the blogosphere: when someone sends me a link that is summarized like this

That is the La Defense. In Paris! And the person on the trike has been paid by Google to ride around the city taking pictures for Google Street View.

Charlotte, did you spot any of these guys? (ETA: Apparently they’re cruising around England, too.)
Thanks to Jen for the link!
