Street Picnic

This picnic in the street was organised by the inhabitants and shopkeepers of the 7th 'arrondissement' (neighbourhood) of Paris; traffic was halted, flashy pink rugs covered the streets, and the inhabitants (including the students of my grad school) sat in the middle of the road, sharing a bite with their neighbours, in one of the most charming (and tasty) 'community-building' experiences I ever had!

June 2004, Paris, France.

  2. Is this a common thing that happens in Paris? Interesting!
