The atmosphere accross France on Saturday night was something very special, and something so different to what we all lived through last autumn. For a change almost everyone was French, racial differences were forgotton, if France lose tonight will it all revert to how it was before, the old tensions and hatred returning. Over the last few week I have heard numerous people saying that the world cup is all hype etc etc, but this really is a 'feel good' time for everyone living in France, the summer is here, the team are doing well, and just imagine if the team go on and win it....fete national will last all week!!
Looking for something great and new to do with the kids? Sherwood Parc in Seugy, only 300m from the station of Seugy; you take the Luzarches train from the Gare du Nord. Brand new, well laid out, death-defying jumps and loooong tyrroleans. And Fabien speak perfect English! Take a picnic and make a day of it, really close to the Mont Griffon hotel too if you prefer. http://www.sherwoodparc.com/
After years of inactivity and injury I'm trying to get back in shape but am reluctant to join the main-stream clubs in paris as I'm not sure that they have the expertise to deal with people with injuries/weaknesses etc. Would anyone be able to recommend a club/gym either in Paris or the western suburbs which is good. thanks
