Voilà le genre d'autocollant qui a fleuri sur les murs de Bordeaux ces derniers jours.
This is the kind of sticker that has popped up on the walls of Bordeaux in recent days.
"Parisien rentre chez toi" : le ton est donné.
"Parisian go home": the tone is set.
Un résident - "Il y avait une qualité de vie, on vivait quand même paisiblement".
A resident - "There was a quality of life, we lived peacefully".
Depuis le 1er juillet dernier, et grâce - ou à cause (c'est selon) de la ligne à grande vitesse, Paris n'est plus qu'à 2h de Bordeaux contre 3h15 auparavant.
Since July 1, and thanks to - or because of (it depends) the high-speed rail, Paris is now less than 2 hours away from Bordeaux against 3:15 before.
Pour les Parisiens, Bordeaux c'est devenu une ville très attractive pour les weekends ou le business, avec les effets qui s'en font ressentir.
For Parisians, Bordeaux has become a very attractive city for weekends or business, and the impact is being felt.
Un résident - "Le problème effectivement avec l'attrait parisien, c'est que Bordeaux perd son caractère sud-ouest.
A resident - "The problem indeed with Parisian attractiveness is that Bordeaux loses its southwestern character.
Elle fait l'objet d'une spéculation immobilière assez intense de la part de Parisiens.
It is subject to intense property speculation by Parisians.
C'est ce qu'on appelle classiquement l'effet LGV."
That's what is called classically the HSR effect. "
Un résident - "Il y a tout le temps des bouchons. La ville, les boulevards, la rocade, tout est bouché."
A resident - "There are traffic jams all the time. The city, the boulevards, the ring road, everything is blocked."
Vivre à Bordeaux, travailler à Paris : la LGV donc le permet désormais.
Living in Bordeaux, working in Paris: high-speed rail now allows it.
Une aubaine pour les Parisiens qui peuvent ainsi troquer les Champs-Élysées contre des quais rénovés, et les grands boulevards contre la douceur de la rue Sainte-Catherine.
A boon for the Parisians who can thus swap the Champs-Élysées for renovated quays, and the grand boulevards for the sweetness of the rue Sainte-Catherine.
Une représentante de la communauté parisienne - "On cède à l'attractivité de Bordeaux, donc c'est normal que ça attire beaucoup de monde.
A Parisian community representative - "We give in to the attractiveness of Bordeaux, so it is normal that it attracts a lot of people.
Si les jeunes classes moyennes partent - et on voit dans nos nouveaux adhérents beaucoup de gens jeunes avec des enfants - c'est qu'au fond ils espèrent des jours meilleurs ailleurs.
If the young middle class leave - and we see in our new members a lot of young people with children - it is that in fact they are hoping for better days elsewhere.
Que ce soit à Bordeaux ou dans d'autres villes de province."
Whether in Bordeaux or in other provincial cities. "
Alors face à ce constat, certains Bordelais ont décidé d'en rire : ce boulanger par exemple.
So in the face of this, some people from Bordeaux have decided to laugh at it: this baker for example.
Un boulanger - "Chocolatine c'est vrai que c'est dans le sud-ouest, pain au chocolat c'est dans le nord.
A baker - "People say chocolatine in the south-west and pain au chocolat in the north.
On s'est dit que pour rigoler on allait marquer chocolatine à 1 , pain au chocolat 1,50 .
We thought that as a joke we would write chocolatine for € 1, pain au chocolat for € 1.50.
Ce n'est que de l'humour, c'est pour faire rire les gens.
It's only humor, it's to make people laugh.
Et je vous rassure : que ce soit pain au chocolat ou chocolatine, ça sera 1 pour tout le monde.
And let me reassure you: be it chocolatine or pain au chocolat, it will be 1 € for everyone.
Même les Parisiens !"
Even for Parisians! "
