Paris and I ~ 'Back To The Daily Grind'

~ Back To The Daily Grind ~

Back To The Daily Grind, originally uploaded by Paris Set Me Free.

Everything stops in summer here in Paris. Well, almost everything.

Bakers are closed when you need some bread; trains run on Sunday service all week (but you can get a seat in the morning); on-going administrative procedures can be forgotten about for weeks; and of course all the free newspapers that litter the stations are conspicuous by their absence.

Well now they're back with a vengeance. I can put down my boring little books about the mysteries of the city and start my day instead with events in the Elysée and murders in the Camargue.

The French call this period 'la rentrée' (the return) and generally wish each other a good one. So 'bonne rentrée', wherever you are!
