Bassin de la Villette - la vie quotidienne

Bassin de la Villette

This is not a place frequented by tourists...
which is why I love it so.

It is a place where Parisians can enjoy a relaxing afternoon:
sunning, strolling, having a picnic, playing games...
It is a great place to observe the best of Paris, 
to see the locals as "not so different" from you.

However, do note that there are no guard rails 
and a meter drop to the surface of the water.

Hello Genie:

This looks a most jolly place in which to pass time. How wonderful to find somewhere, unlike the United Kingdom, with a disregard,at least here, for Health and Safety!!
