remember) but my

Montparnasse the

suspect that that

metres) tunnel.

short either.

... ... Whatever you do don't take seriously the "entrance" to
Châtelet that

...
... The metro there is called Hôtel de Ville and you can't walk underground
... to Châtelet (or
... anywhere else).
...
... You certainly can. I've done it. I'm not talking about the Hôtel de
... Ville metro station. I'm talking about the small entrance that says
... "Châtelet".


The metro station near the Mairie is called Hôtel de Ville. Nothing can
change it.


Who's trying to change it? (Though I dispute that nothing could change
it: the RATP could certainly change it). Anyway, I made it perfectly
clear that I wasn't referring to the Metro station called Hôtel de
Ville, but to the small entrance that says "Châtelet", and leads to an
underground passage that provides a long walk to Châtelet.
