This memorable journey in the 13th arrondissement started by a 20150228_093918Qi Gong demonstration in the Parc de Choisy where I hid the beers for the beer stop.

 

It continued by trail setting in the sunshine for the next 13 k and was followed by a Chicken Imperial with soya and peanuts sauce, served with rice noodles and Jasmine tea to recover before the circle.

 

10 hashers including the hare were present , 4 walkers and 6 runners , most of you new to the Paris Hash or long term returnees and thanks to Meetup referrals .

 

I am making a plea to experienced Paris or Sans Clue hashers  . Those new recruits need proper education in flour sniffing, singing, and drinking !

 

The hare “The Anarchist” gave the usual instructions . Sleeping Sex was denied the right to hold the map and Just Lindsay took command of the walkers group, chaperoning a young couple Lexa and Just Antoine .

The runners were led by Dirty Rags from Guangdong who was eager to discover a city run , quite different from his usual trails in the the jungle forest with false trails leading to nowhere.

 

Ossama being Hashing , a long term returnee from Paris hash , only 6 years pause without remorse …………., was already finding his marks and organising the first check point searches demonstrating his ability to delegate for finding the false trails .

 

 

20150228_142541Dirty Rags was already on his way for the first check back, which all the pack enjoyed to discover the nice houses in the alley close to Parc Montsouris.

Just Vlad aka Shitty Pants from Romania was already demonstrating his ability for walking the running trail .

20150228_144406He found a chatting partner Socks and Roses for the next 12 k …….

 

We rapidly ran across the boulevard for a discovery of the gardens of the “Cite Internationale universitaire ”

 

20150228_144725

Socks and Roses ankles began to suffer from hip pain and he requisitioned the scooter of Ossama’s son

 

 

20150228_14522320150228_145031We reached the Charlety stadium for a gentle training session around the tracks .

and had a group picture at the first hash view .

 

The next kms were stretching the pack between the FRB Dirty Rags and the chatting DFL Chitty Pants and Socks and Roses .

 

Just before arriving at Porte de Choisy , the pack dismantled  . The hare, caring for the DFL, lost sight of the upfront squad .

 

They had plenty of time to discover the crowdy shopping malls of China Town and get lost underneath the buildings of the Olympiades esplanade .

20150228_161341

 

The hare desperately20150228_154122 tried to locate them and had to go back and forth and was resigned to have lost enthusiastic hashers transformed into dim suns or sushis ….

 

The Anarchist  reached the beer stop and find the first survivor Dirty Rags . The walkers had found the beer , Socks and Roses managed clip clopping to reach the pack and by the miracle of internet the rest of the pack called the GM for rescue .

 

After a few beers , we finished the last park of the trail exploring the charming strets of La butte aux cailles and after the last stairs , the parc Montsouris was in sight for the final circle .

 

Ossama B H  did his best as RA for the day and promised he will learn a hash song everyday for the next run !

 

The prize for late comers was given to Saving Ryan’s private and his half who managed to find the trail alone , the beer stop without beer and up towards the circle . Hurrah for these determined hashers and for the hare who laid the trail .

 

The hash hymn concluded this superb day .

20150214_143728For this Valentine’s run our Hare French Kiss prepared a superb trail in the unknown Parc de Saint Cloud, unknown because most of you just know the terrace gardens above the Seine .

But there is a huge forest area going up to Marne La Coquette , the walkers can testify but let’s go from the start.

Special X & Y checkpoints to day but sadly most of the hashers were celebrating at home or had the flu ….

20150214_142938Anyway the rather small but determined pack regrouped for a selfie and we  split equally into walkers Margo PG , What’s his name  and runners.

The Anarchist followed the Hare French Kiss for a special private training session for the “cross du Figaro ” !

Despite careful instructions from the hare the walkers ignored them , took probably the wrong map and meticulously followed the long and windy runner’s trail , up to the point where they were totally lost !!

20150214_152648

Hash is always a challenge and an adventure but chatting with a nice lady always a reward .

Her Prince Charming had the delicate attention to offer a relief at the Marne la Coquette railway station to avoid another long walk back and after one train stop they finally arrived at the Saint Cloud station .

20150214_152631Meanwhile The Anarchist and French Kiss were keeping on seizing the way with enthusiasm and curiosity.

20150214_162337Curiosity for arts and divine creature …..

The sunlight between the trees , the shiggy trails, some black crows eating the moist flour and my private coach asking not to slow down the pace to meet the walkers at the beer stop .

20150214_155602But as mentioned above the walkers were at the totally opposite side of the forest and we had to drink to their misfortune the two of us at the wall named Chalet de l’Oasis.

20150214_161933

Last part of the run was also the opportunity to run across the gardens and the vestiges of the former Château royal

20150214_162122And gently we followed the On In sign while heavy clouds were announcing the short coming rainfall .

20150214_173212We joined the walkers for a brief circle and drove to French Kiss family nest with Anaconda and the kids for a well deserved beer and a home-made Chili con carne .

May the hash go in peace !

20150131_143246The first challenge was to reach the square des Abbesses by car with the beer load  as 1.30 pm is the local hour to pick up garbage in the tiny streets of Montmartre .

 

 

Second challenge was to find a parking place and Just Laurent had the right eye in a small dead end passage.

 

20150131_143309Last challenge was to understand what we thought the confused instructions of the Hare ( see picture ) , before he scribed the flour signs on the ground.

 

In fact The Anarchist liked the inscription with the lady : ” Aimer c’est du desordre …alors aimons !

 

 

 

 

Up My ass , the hare, was quite jovial from his trail setting in the sunshine this morning and was eager to let us discover this picturesque part of Paris.

20150131_14383720150131_144023

 

 

And off we went and after a few meters on the paved streets gently going up, we knew that we will have to deserve the promised beer stop.

 

You will notice the difference in pace and face expression throughout the trail.

 

 

At the beginning Labib was running the stairs two by two and the pack was beginning to spread .

20150131_144032We arrived at the famous place du Tertre shouting On On while looping around the artists.

20150131_144509

 

 

Little Red was not that far .

 

 

The pack did not exist any longer and we had plenty of time to take pictures of the boutiques .

 

20150131_14462020150131_145306Finally we made our way down for a while for a super check at the Lapin Agile.

The hare was eye looking at Mabouche who honoured the Paris hash with her presence, just landing from hot Brasil to cool Paris .

 

I decided to loose my self in dead end trail with cute houses while the regrouped pack was already climbing the next stairs.

20150131_15024720150131_150303I saw the BN sign and signs of fatigue were seen on the faces , fortunately there were benches for the elder !

 

The harriettes had a chance to catch up : Sleeping Sex, Naughty ways and Little Red.

 

 

After a couple of beers and munchies the hare reminded us we have not visited the Sacre Coeur yet .

20150131_152753

 

 

We first ran across the shopping streets and had to climb some more stairs .

 

 

20150131_15354620150131_154929Sex Tourist was in a good shape as usual and was taunting us on top of the stairs , chatting with What’s His name who had a long shortcut.

 

We enjoyed the great view on the roofs of Paris and were waiting for the ladies who never showed off and prefferred to short cut to the On In , escaping the last stairs.

 

 

The only Harriette who survived this epic run was Little Red who could barely walk up the stairs .

 

And we made it to the On In at square des abbesses where our RA of the day Mabouche did her best to animate the circle but pouring half frozen rain gave the start to run to the On After bar at Prohibido .

20150131_171558Thanks for this superb run Up My ass we will remember . And if you want more go to Sans Clue next Sunday , you will do it anti clockwise !
