People of Nantes – Summer 2015 [3]

It started to rain last Sunday and it lasted for three days. Three long days during which we got soaked from head to toes. There isn’t much to do indoors in Nantes so we shrugged the weather off and went out anyway. Maybe not the smartest decision, but what else to do?

The entire atmosphere changed in the city. The pavement was shiny and very slippery, people were gathering under store canopies and bus shelters during worst downpours and restaurant terraces were empty from tourists. Everywhere you could hear the same comment: “at least, we aren’t at the seaside… ah, these poor people who took time off this week, oh, it must be miserable over there!”

Indeed, when the weather is bad, I’d rather be in the city. At least, there are movie theaters, stores and museums.

And then, the heavy dark clouds were blown away and the weather got better.

Ouf. We are back outside. Sometime, it takes a bit of bad weather to enjoy summer again.
