Spring is the season of all colours. It's the season when we start realising that both the sun and the heat are finally coming back. This little restaurant with its façade filled with wisteria is situated on Ile de la Cité in the heart of Paris, a stone's throw away from Notre Dame de Paris. This little hidden gem looks like it could be in any village in France.
France likes to have rules. Many rules. Rules that don't always make sense. Rules that haven't changed in many years. The use of green areas is one of them. Grass is very restricted in parks. It's there to look good, not to be enjoyed. This square of grass is the only one that can used in the Jardin du Luxembourg. But even though you can sit on this part, you are not allowed to drink alcohol. Another useless rule. Gardners/guards will come and tell you off even if you don't create trouble and that you are just enjoying life with your friends. Do you agree that grass should not be used? Do you agree that we should not have the right to drink a glass of wine or a beer while enjoying the sun?
