From about mid-July to the end of August, most Parisians go away on vacation. One of our neighbors said that he was leaving the city to spend time in the country “where he could breathe.” Ironically, these few weeks during the summer are the best time to be in Paris, because automobile circulation and pedestrian traffic are greatly reduced.
During this period, people gather in cafés and on sidewalks to savor the brief respite.
Here are some photos of people enjoying the sweet life of summer in Paris.
