DigitalTransport4Africa Meetup, Paris- 2 mins
Day 0: Nathalie and I finding our way to the nearest KFC
This meetup was also saw the launch the Beta version of the DigitalTransport4Africa Resource Center: which contains data, information and tools used to accomplish paratransit mapping projects in Africa cities.
We had a day Open event for everyone with presentations, interactions and networking around Open Transport at Le Square. GTFS was much higlighted as we are talking transportation. Interested in GTFS? Here a comprehensive MOOC from the World Bank - Introduction to the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) and Informal Transit System Mapping (Self-Paced)
Knowing this was my first time in Europe and Paris for the fact. Had the opportunity to move around a bit. I loved the connectivity of sidewalks in Paris. Thanks to the awesome OpenStreetMap community in France, my self and colleague enthusiasts had no difficulty moving around. It was also a great time put face to OSM usernames from Paris I have known remotely.

I very much admire how easy it is to walk around in Paris. Yes I walked from my around Gare de Lyon to Notre Dame then to Eiffel Tower with Mr. Randy :)
Cheers! Am not good at selfies!
