I went gaga when I set out on my stroll through the Louvre gardens (called the Tuillieries) and stumbled upon a circus. It was such a fun juxtaposition of one of Paris’s major historic monuments and the bright cheerful colors of le cirque!
After doing a little digging, I realized that the modern circus we are familiar with originated in England. So you’ll see lots of English and French words on signage. Or some Franglish like ‘New Yorkais’
This cute French boy jumped into my shot when he realized I was taking pictures. And that crepe with ham and cheese…my mouth waters just looking at that picture. How cute would a little crepe stand be at a rehearsal dinner, with cute star paper to wrap them in!
One thing that the French circuses have much more of is CANDY. The seem to skip the savory and jump straight into the sweets. How else can you handle going on those rides without a sugar rush?
More sweet treats for you tomorrow…
