Paris through Flora’s eyes: Merry-go-rounds! I lost count of how many times we rode a merry-go-round. The greatest form of entertainment was the Manèges de Noël. The rides are free, run on beautiful, old merry-go-rounds, and not once did we have to wait on a line. Probably because they are scattered throughout the entire city across 18 districts. I love this equal opportunity of fun for all children in Paris. It was Flora’s highlight. And it helped us slow down, take in the beautiful sites, and enjoy the moment.
