The past week has been terribly hot in Paris - and in France in general - and the fear of a Canicule (a heat wave) like the one we had in 2003 which killed 15 000 people (mostly senior citizens) is in all our mind. This past weekend has been much cooler, but the coming week will be hot again from Wednesday onward. Of course compared to the heat in Texas or Arizona, there is still a long way to go, but, remember, very very few homes have air conditioning in France... Anyway I chased this couple in the street because I thought they were a perfect illustration of the current weather - and they look cute too!
