Paris Plages 2012

Founded in 2002 by Mayor Bertrand Delanoë, the event has since spread to many cities.
From this year parisians and tourists were able to relax on the large beach that runs a kilometer along the Sena River or enjoy the activities on offer: tai chi, library, gym, dance...

At the back are
Pont du Change, connect L Ile de la Cite with the Conciergerie, the first dating from the 9th century
Conciergerie on the banks of the River Seine in heart of Paris, is the oldest remaining part of the Palais de la Cité, the first royal palace in the French capital that was used as a prison during the French Revolution

The Photo
I cross the Point St Michelle searching a good light to take a photo at the Conciergerie when I discover the colorful Paris Plage, went down to stroll at the beach, listening music I approach and saw people doing gym with a caribean music, so in Paris not all has French flavor
