Ray Maker is known to most of us as the electronics guru DC Rainmaker and he is now residing in Paris where we checked in with him. He moved to France with his wife during the summer and has settled in nicely. We will most likely talk with Ray on a regular basis to hear what projects and reviews he is working on specifically, but today we simply focused on what he is actually doing there.

It also appears that Ray has had time to explore to local running scene and stumbled upon a particular interesting race called Santa Corrida de Nol, a 10k with thousands of runners dressed as Santa.

He wrote a detailed report about that event here.
