3 Rue Brey, 75017 Paris, France
'Bisous' in French means 'kisses' and on their national day (especially in Paris) you may get a few, since everyone is celebrating. It's a real treat to be anywhere on July 14th in France, but Paris knows how to put on a show. After the sun goes...

Everyone enjoys the shade on Paris afternoon in July. While taking a break before Notre Dame we watched the end of a match and cheered the men on.

Port de la Bourdonnais, 75007 Paris, France

Every Sunday morning ( around 10 am) the locals gather with accordionist Christian Bassoul and at the bottom of rue Mouffetard ( 5eme) to sing favorite French songs and dance the morning away. A large crowd joins them and song sheets are passed....
