The afternoon was planned by a short email from Adrian:
Meet at 1 p.m. at Place des Vosges
Bring goodies to eat and drink
and invite friends...
See you there.
And from that simple email, we all met for a wonderful May Day Picnic on the park square inside Place des Vosges.
"and invite friends..." I couldn't resist inviting my new French friend Pierre-Yves.
"Cheers to Spring!"
Beginning of Picnic.
End of Picnic.
Pierre-Yves and Me.
According to French photo laws (and Pierre-Yves), I must have permission to post photos of other people. This was confirmed just as I took the photo of the police woman informing our group that alcohol was not allowed in a Public Park. Then she warned me nicely not to take her photo. We quickly threw away the 7 empty wine bottles and continued the day.
