Fête de la Musique

Today as every year since 1982, live music will be on street corners, in squares, and pouring out of cafés and bars as the entire city is transformed into a giant stage. Pick a neighborhood and stroll.
(Most public transportation will be running all night)

All this week: Les Îles Grecques

This week's photos feature the atmospheric Greek Islands where we recently spent ten glorious do-nothing contemplative days...  just in time for the full moon.
So sit back, pour yourself a glass of Ouzo and... Enjoy! BPJ
