Where has everybody gone?
Those who have already been to Paris will probably recognize the Assemblée Nationale, the French Parliament, one of the chambers where laws are discussed and voted (and where our representatives sometimes behave like 4 year old kids... but that is another story!) It is located in the middle of Paris, right by the Pont de la Concorde, near the Champs Elysées. Needless to say, normally there is an enormous amount of traffic on this bridge. But not in August... Paris is almost empty at the moment and that is why I love this particular time of the year!
