Enjoy yourself, car parking is free in Paris now, and it’s summer holiday time in France

Café du matin à Paris 5 août 2013 3 c Renaud Favier

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think, and your favourite shops in town may close while you work too much for too little, walk too fast for those you love, talk too much about unsignificant things, try to teach to deaf deads, or just look elsewhere …

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think, the good, nice, sunny days go faster than the clouds with the wind …

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think, your hair gets grey faster than it ever did, these days …

Enjoy the spices of life, tourists in Paris and free parking in August in town, as long as they are around …

RIP, Neil #Armstrong, Forever First Man on the Moon

Maybe you could have found a cheaper way to go swimming at sea, summer 1969.

Maybe you didn’t need to go that far to find a quiet beach, at that time.

Maybe you could have gone dancing with friends to a closer place, then.

Maybe you should have worn nicer shoes for worldwide television, this day.

Maybe you should have left the place as clean as you had found it in July.

Maybe not. Maybe you did the right choice and said the right thing.

Maybe you could have created a startup rather than joining government.

Maybe you could have played basket ball a more standard way.

Maybe you could have had a less controversial boss.

Maybe you could have been a better “chef” yourself.

Maybe not. Maybe you went the best way and did the best thing.
What is for sure is that, now you can report mission Apollo 11 to Kennedy.
What is for sure, is that you are up there forever, now.
What is for sure, is that you have a nice place under the sun, with a view, now.
What is for sure is that you flew safely back home and won’t ever walk alone.
Good bye, Sir.
Please keep an eye on us, on the US, on earth …

Yet another “Place to Be” in France this Summer (but with the same people as in Paris, far less taxis than taxes as anywhere in France, and unlike Saint Tropez, no helicopters)

La Rochelle, Plage des Minimes

Forget Paris and the Velib’, too commonplace and Paris-Plages is over. Forget Saint Tropez and Pampelone Beach, too nouveau-riche and Bardot is over. Forget Marrakech. The place to be now is La Rochelle, where the smart people go.

New France, where the smart (money) go (es away from)

Of course, France is now a socialist paradise, with a lot of lining up in front of empty places with red, great promises outside and red carpets speeches but no food inside and bikes instead of cars.

Do you know why we are queueing up ? No, who cares to know why, we have to, that’s the new way it is, maintenant

And unlike in Asian communist countries, the best and brightest don’t (all) escape to study in Harvard or Berkeley and create startups in Sillicon Valley or Boston, but (some, surely too many) stay and study in one of the many French graduate schools for civil servants with a view to become at best Minister of startups in Sillicon Sentier, at worst Minister of whatever doesn’t work in France like Industry, Small Business Growth, University, Innovation, Immigration, Housing, Economics, Ecology, Chicken, Export, Chicken Export …

Best an brightest, Junior-Minister of “Numeric Economy” under supervision of the Minister of “Industrial Renewal”

And the bad news is, France may be the sole remaining communist place in the world with an unrealistically overvalued currency German style but no black exchange market (yet) like they had in former DDR or other communist German Hinterland, refurbished Asian or Qatar owned hotels with remote controlled color TV and high speed internet but communist standard room service, and a business airport close to Paris with standard capitalist traffic jams but communist standard helicopter service for Party members and Government only, and far less taxis than taxes, of course.

Red Carper toward l’avenir is in La Rochelle, maintenant

Anyway, La Rochelle is the place to be, now, if you enjoy France or can’t avoid it.

Psssst boys, this is not the place where the girls are …

So far, so French so good, growth is around the La Rochelle corner.

The (#Green) #French should soon be (Back) at Work for a (to) #Change (#France)

Fifty-Fifty, fair enough, but does it work ?

Everybody in France (and other places where people think a sinking Europe is a bad customer and could be an awful debtor) cross fingers, that after their never ending French elections and summer holiday, the French are ready for real work, now.

French Lagarde (IMF Boss) & French Lamy (WTO Boss)

Everybody, even out of France, expects the French Government is seriously at work, now. Not just playing “serious games” …

Cécile Duflot, August 2012, at French Green Summer Camp. Was elected “Député” of Paris thanks to Socialist/Ecologist agreement at 2012 French presidential election. Currently Minister of Housing in François Hollande Government

Not like the French handball champions who deserved a long holiday after their gold medal celebrated by getting drunk and devastating a TV studio where the were interviewed, neither like their national football team that has become the shame of France and laughing stock of the planet with or without playing, nor like their patriots who were not in London to support France at the Games, but are real red government carpet fans who got free tickets for the one way plane or train to London the Oympics as almost every French tax-exiled in England everybody in London …

Like the French President.

Well, well, well …

But not like the French Ecologists, whose boss is quite desperate at their annual 3-day meeting somewhere in the French countryside …

Not well, not well, not well …

… as he sees the naked Green France.

Well, well, well …

The Green France with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or not decided about the glasses …

Well …

… or whatever works, with or without glasses …

Definitely not well …

… or whoever walks talking romance or talks walking romance all the time instead of working …

As well as can be …

France, so Green, so French, So Good, So Fresh … and hopefully back at work soon(er or later).

Never mind … it’s just Grass …

So French, so good : “growth is around the (French) corner and all lights are green” (but not vice-versa).

Everything is cool under the sun in #Paris #France

France may be the best place to live happily under the sun. Some people (with a red carpet) say, it may not last forever. Some say, it may not last for long. But as long as the French manage with Frenchonomics and borrow money for free, it’s cool.

Some say, there ‘s nothing like a free loan lunch, and one needs to borrow a lot to afford French retaurants. Anyway, it’s still holiday time in France, always look on the bright sun salt sight side of France life and enjoy Paris-Plage as long as it lasts.

Please, kindly click on the French cat to read more about it in French (but never awake the sleeping cat, especially the fat kind, of course), or just find a way to bypass it and follow the beach reading in English.

Some additional e-reading may be needed about how to think smarter about the future of Europe, France, Britain and other places of the changing world these days.

I’ll be back soon(er or later)

It’s Summertime in #Paris #France, at last !

Summertime in Paris is all the better, since there are a couple of season’s beaches along the Seine River and less cars. Besides, with or without climate change, the weather is just great theses days. Let’s enjoy it, as good as it is, and as long as it lasts.
