Everyone knows that Parisians are theirs. Most of the French that I know in Dublin answer the question of you are from Paris? with the face of someone who just bit a piece of chili thinking it was a piquillo pepper and saying: nou, nou, nou !. In defense of those from the capital of gabacholandia -known in small circles like France- say that one of my best friends is Parisian and it has always been a pleasure to visit the so-called city of love. Well, years after the success of the song that of "There is no beach here!", And before it was translated into French, the Parisians saw the wolf's ears and they decided to put sand on the banks of the magnificent Seine doing so something more bearable the life of the thousands of inhabitants who must spend the summer in the city that, like almost all of Europe, has suffered very high temperatures during the last summers. It also becomes another attraction for tourists who will not hesitate to take a mojito lying in one of the hammocks.
The beach of Paris will be available to bathers from July 21 to August 21 And the program is already decided. There will be 3 main locations: Georges Pompidu, he Bassin de la Villette in Stalingrad and the lungosenna de la Gare, right next to the BNF. As news, the surface of the Villette has doubled and the Georges Pompidou area opens a new fitness room in the arena and a mini-golf. In addition, offers of tai chi, petanque, beach volleyball and salsa, merengue, tango and many other types of dance are maintained.
So, if you go to Paris this summer don't forget the flip flops, the towel, the bucket and the shovel (for those with advanced Peter Pan syndrome)
