Nouvel Bath

On Sunday I voluntarily went to Le Havre. Not to take a ferry to England or photograph urban desolation - but to take a bath.

Les Bains de Docks were designed by Jean Nouvel and might actually be worth the treck out. There are 6 indoor and outdoor swimming pools (heated in the winter), saunas, steam rooms, and a mega slide for children (and childish twentysomethings).

Le Havre felt like post-nuclear Fukushima and there was virtually no place to eat, but facing the bleakness was kind of fun. 

The Paris Wallpaper Guide also recommends this as a schmancy day trip from the capital. Not that you can't just go swimming there.
