Haven of peace in Crime City

Saint-Denis, only 5 miles away from downtown Paris, owns the sad record of criminality in France. Of course, we are not talking murders as France is still a country where violent crimes are not a common fact, but thefts, riots and drug traffic. So very few would believe that Saint-Denis also can look like a common countryside town where people will come for a midday rest contemplating the slow flow of the Seine River.    (click on picture to enlarge)
