Dodo Manège - Carrousel XXII



Dodo Manège

This is a unique little carrousel tucked away in Jardin des Plantes,
well-known by the children of Paris.

Hello Genie:
How one longs for a return to this kind of carousel which too often today has been replaced with high speed rides designed to thrill and scare and where screams are the order of the day.

I'd be smiling like that too if I was taking that ride. How wonderful!

How exciting to be a child growing up in Paris. The look on the little girl's face tells is all.

It seems almost as if it's from a different age or a scene from a story book. Vraiment charmant!

Jane and Lance, I have found more of the old-fashioned carousels in Paris than one would imagine. This one along with the new petite carousel in Parc de Monceau is amazing and charming.

This young girl was a delight, and I would have to say... definitely a French girl!

Live life like you are riding a carousel and you have a pocket full of tickets!

Bises,
Genis

We were just there this afternoon - although we are 'between' carousel ages at the moment with the big girls, who used to adore them, now too big and Florence still too small. Next year will be her year of carousels I think. Could be a whole blog series in that ;)

Mary said...

And it's a wonderful one! How fun. Even at the older age i am; i'd love to take a ride on it. Though i think i'd be able to hold myself back and let the children have a go instead.. :D

Un très joli manège avec des animaux exotiques, que je ne connais pas. Je comprends mieux pourquoi puisqu'il se trouve au Jardin des plantes !!!
