Paris Plage, once again

From July 20th to August 29th, Paris has a beach right inside the city. the manmade beach along the river Seine, now opening for the third year running.

Deck chairs, sun-loungers and colourful parasols have sprung up everywhere.
And by lunchtime, it was impossible to find a free chair. The biggest novelty this year, though, is a 28-metre swimming pool, installed after complaints last year that there was nowhere to cool off properly during August's heatwave.Once again, the French flair put into organising petanque and picnics along with Seine, sea and sand just shows what Paris can do - something that won't go unnoticed in the battle with London for the 2012 Olympic Games.
