Do you like to play ping-pong? One of my friends suggested that I remind you ping-pong players to pack your paddles. Almost all of the parks have concrete ping-pong tables, free of charge. You could try the beautiful Jardin de Ranelagh, Paris 16 (Metro: Muette, Line 9; RER C – Boulainvilliers station) at the same time as visiting the Monet Museum (Musee Marmottan Monet) or the Square Pierre de Gaulle when you are visiting the Rodin Museum or the Hotel des Invalides (Paris 7).

The wreck is orientated in an ESE to WNW direction and lies on a seabed of hard sand and gravel, in a general depth of 58 metres (LAT). It is upright, intact and fairly substantial, standing 5.2 metres high at the stern to midships section, with decking and some superstructure visible, but her bows to the east are reported to be broken off.
The wrecksite covers an area of 55 m in length by 10 m across, with the upper structures coated in a beautiful array of soft corals and large plumose anemones. The ship’s bell, which may still be around, will most probably be inscribed Oran 1911. Shoals of various fish have adopted the wreck so it will make a reasonable boat-angling venue.
