Le Weekend--in Paris it is left to strolling, spending time walking through the beautifully manicured gardens, stopping at one's favorite café to sit and people watch while sipping a favorite beverage. For true Parisians it is family meals on Sunday, gatherings in apartments for a long, relaxed afternoon. So many places, shops and restaurants, are closed so there is little distraction and it is necessary to actually "think" about how you would like to fill your time. Like here, the weekend edition of the newspaper is extended and includes all sorts of extras. Magazines added to Le Figaro are as comprehensive as any fashion or news magazine you might buy in the states. The paper, a glass of wine and good company at a little café is the best way to spend a Saturday or Sunday. With that thought, I send you off to some interesting reading on the Internet--curl up with coffee and your computer screen on this Sunday morning. If you are already in Paris, all the better!
