    You’re really troopers in the heat. I’d prob find a secluded corner in the BHV and take up residence. Praying for relief for you, especially for different apt. next year.

    Lovely piquenique! I do believe you were set up across from our old apartment street. Sigh! The only good of this summer for us is that we aren’t in that 6th floor west facing walk-up we had rented. August always brings cooler temps. Hang in there!

      Hope you’re right about August or my daughter’s visit will be tough!

    Remember, Linda. Southern ladies don’t sweat; they glisten!

    Brings to mind a folk song from yesteryear … The Seine.

    Well done on your solution to beat the heat! Love the various building photos.

    Seeing videos of the crazy hail storm in Paris! Hope you’ve had a lovely time a Sorza and don’t get pelted on your way home.

    Sky is darkening this side of the Channel. Rain almost here! Cheers and blessings for the cooler temps.

      Yes, the rain though brief was wonderful and plentiful. Hopefully, more tonight. And the hail pelted us for about ten minutes.

    We hope you find a great view for the finish of le Tour on Sunday. The forecast calls for sunny and temps about 20 degrees cooler than you have today. It should be a great day. I can’t imagine the excitement that must go through the crowd when the 1st riders come into sight.

      It’s a fun experience but the swoosh of the Peleton goes by very fast. The fun part is the parade beforehand. Hard to get a good “seat” so to speak. YOu have to go to a restaurant and sit for hours. One year, we stood for about 5 hours to get right next to the barricades only to have Spaniards come at the last minute and break in front of us. Grrrrr! There are not as many French people as you would think…more Germans, Belgians, Spanish and Italian.
