L'Été en Ville, Paris Plage

L'Été en ville...Summer in the city
You don't need to leave town
Just come to Paris Plage
It was jumping last Sunday
Yet sooo relaxed.
There was a lot of jitterbugging going on for sure even in the heat
To this hot hot band
Everyone was havin' a good time
Drinking lots of apéro classiques
The bars were busy
SUMMER TIME in Paris!!
There were oysters too like at the beach
Or you could cool off walking by the misters..
Or on the grass by the Seine.
I cooled off with a pistache, framboise gelato comme d'habitude.

    1. Good question. I should have said but I was running to catch my train bla bla.
      To begin with an apero is short for aperitiv..a light, usually low alcholic drink..with ice cubes and bubly water plus an aromatic drink like Aperol or Campari...both bitters. Plus maybe a splash of orange juice, a slice of oranfe. Its dunk with small snacks and supposed to arouse your appetite for dinner to come.its a big deal in France especially in the summertime.
      I hope that helps 😀

  7. You make Paris in the summer look so inviting. My favorite apero is a kir and I drink them year round.

  14. Beautiful photos, Carol that really capture the essence of the summery day.
    Your shot of the "mister" was perfect - you could feel the heat after looking at that photo :)
