Monday holidays

Yesterday was everything a holiday is supposed to be.

Paque, or Easter, was celebrated on Sunday but recognized as a national holiday yesterday. Which meant no work – yay!

After doing a little writing at home (which is all I did on Sunday – I didn’t even get out of my pajamas until 8pm, when it was time to go out for drinks), I hopped on a Velib and headed to the Left Bank. I tooled around, got some lunch and went to the Luxembourg Gardens. It was just heavenly to sit there in the sun, reading for two hours.

Then I roamed around Saint-Germaine, window shopping and just enjoying that beautifully calm pace in the city when only half the stores and bakeries are open.

The final stop was up in Canal St-Martin. I biked up to Melissa’s place and then we sat at a café by the canal and had an evening glass of rosé. Ah springtime…
