According to the Paris tweets and blogs I have been reading, Paris hasn’t had much of a summer this year. People were clamoring for sun and warmth, and it seems they got it with a vengeance this weekend. Check this out:
Looks like Paris and Houston traded weather this weekend! It sounds like the Parisians have NOT been enjoying their dose of Texas summer. But keep in mind that air conditioning is a rare thing in Paris, in apartments as well as in commercial buildings. Restaurants, banks, post offices, shops- they all get really stuffy and hot when the temperature rises. Fortunately for Parisians, the heat is not expected to last long. Sadly for Houstonians, the heat isn’t going anywhere any time soon! But today, I am glad I’m in air-conditioned Houston.
Keep cool, mes amis!
