Photo of the Day

Déjà vu! The iglide car had seen the Statue of Liberty in New York City over the summer, and now again in Paris! 

There are actually four replicas of the statue across Paris, including this one near the Grenelle Bridge on the Île aux Cygnes, a man-made island in the Seine River. This replica of Lady Liberty, which was a gift to America from France in the late 1800's, stands just under 38 feet high, and faces Southeast toward her American sister.

The Statue of Liberty and the dry-tech box - both international superstars! Wink

Bonjour, iglide car!

Unfortunately, we have had problems with our website the past few days, making updates very difficult. While the blog was on break, however, there was no rest for iglide on tour, which has made it's way through England and onto France! 

The first day in France, we made our way to Paris, where we visited the Eiffel Tower. Unfortunately, the car couldn't make it to the top!

Photos of the Day

Over the weekend, the iglide car took part in a smart car rally, which coinsided with The UK's Remembrance Sunday, which is held on the second Sunday each November to commemorate the contributions of British and Commonweath militaries, as well as civil service men and women.  Remembrance Sunday, which is marked by ceremonies in most cities and towns, also takes times to pay their respects during a two-minute moment of silence across the region, when church bells ring out across the otherwise silent country. 

Coincidentally, today is also Veterans Day in the United States, and Remembrance Day in Canada, so igus and the members of iglide on tour would like to thank all service members who have dedicated their lives to their countries.
