12/10/2008 13h30 Brussels (Belgium) - avenue Fonsny spot

In Brussels I leave the bus in the avenue Fonsny, near the Gare de Midi, where I will take the train on to Amsterdam. When I prepare to cross the road over to the station's entrance, on the corner with the rue de Russie, I spot a bit of tape wound around the pole of a traffic sign. My iPhone's Shazam recognized: "Tu planes sur moi", by Native.

12/10/2008 08h50 Bagnolet (France) - avenue Gallieni spot

On my way to the Gallieni station, to get a bus that'll take me to Brussels, I find a 3M data-tape (see picture) in the gutter near the offices of 'Emerson Network Power'. The writing on the tape's cover suggests that the data save that's on it was made in november 1997.
