Adjusting to the different summers
Fourth of July marks the middle of summer for America. But for France, the summer is only beginning. Upon my arrival back, as I’m switching to summer mode, everyone around me only has a month of vacation left! As we all know, June 21st was the summer solstice which marks the official first day of summer. France and especially Paris holds fête de la musique, an outdoor music festival where bands are on EVERY block on this day. The city gets pumped in preparation for the music fest and they even change metro stops.
