Paris Quartier d'été
You know that between July 14th and, say, August 20th, France, and Paris in particular, are practically "closed". Not much is going on - culture wise - as everybody is on vacation somewhere in the sun. To "feed" the tourists - and the Parisians who have to stay in the city during the summer months (hence journalists who work on the September issue of their magazine!) - well the Paris town hall organizes each year les Quartiers d'été, a series of cultural activities that take place everywhere in the city. Tonight (Wednesday) I went to the music kiosk of the Luxembourg gardens to listen to Sandra Nkaké. It was really cool.
