It’s been hot and stormy in Nantes, and staying indoors is not an option. There are seven of us (plus a cat) in a two-bedroom apartment and, of course, like most French, we don’t have air-con (unless opening the windows counts as air con).

So we walk by the Loire River, either toward the former shipyards, across the Isle of Nantes, or toward Beaulieu and the suburbs. The streets and the paths are empty, there is very little traffic and it’s breezy. Kind of.

And the skyline is pretty cool.

Thirsty!

    Yike – 7 people in a 2 bed without air con?! Sounds stifling! Mark is so so handsome!

      Is air-con common in the UK? It’s a rare luxury in France.

    I think it is not a TGV on the river, but rather a TER, no ?
    And about air con, consider our president, he always has l’air con.
