Indian Summer in Paris

People have really interesting behavior during the hot months of summer in Paris. There aren't many places that have central air-conditioning, so everyone gets really creative about how to keep cool. Some of the cafes around the Trocadero have installed "mist"ing machines, but for the most part we purchase evian or volvic water spray bottles & bring them with us where ever we go. There are few malls within the city center area, most stores just have a room size air conditioner, and I have yet to find a "P" pool. However, at the Jardins du Trocadero people strip down & play in the fountains to try to keep cool. We have managed to keep Sophia out of the water all summer, but this weekend it was just too hot & she discovered how to splash us & herself.
