The the first picture is an example of creative parking in Paris. The second photo is the car just in front of the more creative example in the first photo. Even the smallest cars have problems parking.
This park below is by the nearest Metro to where I stayed. This photo shows a family having a child's birthday party on the left and on the bench on the right some homeless people sleeping. The time was about mid-afternoon. And this area is considered a very upscale area so go figure.
