So once again the Exodus happened during the first days of August and it’s a pleasure to explore Paris and the surrounding areas (except for the tourist attractions of course) with hardly anyone around.
Walking through the streets of Saint-Cloud in the middle of the day is like walking around a ghost town.
Shops are closed, there isn’t a single bakery open until the last week of August, and if you get sick and need a doctor, well - don’t. Need a pharmacy for medicine - too bad. Everyone is on holiday until the rentrée!
Is it any wonder that even the hotel in Saint-Cloud is closed? Afterall, why stay open when there isn’t anyone around?
The Parc de Saint-Cloud with its 460 hectares (a little more than 1136 acres) is considered one of the most beautiful gardens in all of Europe, but there’s almost no one to be seen on such a beautiful day.
The only two guys around!
From the Porte Maillot to the Arc de Triomphe, from the Eiffel Tower to the Tour Montparnasse, with the Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre in the distance, Paris and the Seine spread out before you in a bird’s eye view from the park.
Where is everybody?
Not even water in the fountain.
Maya Muses: We did find a Chinese restaurant open for business.
Hark! We see lights down below!
No surprise, business was booming! Well, you know what I mean!
