National Strike in France (March 19)

Thursday was another strike day here in France, so a lot of people took off from work to avoid the strike and/or to participate.  Since Alex is off on vacation this week, he drove me to the gym so that I could work out
 It was such a beautiful - warm and sunny -day that we changed our afternoon plans to see Coco, a new French comedy, we went to walk in our favorite parc, the Parc de Sceaux.  Here are some pictures of what you would typically see on a weekend afternoon in the park, as the weather brought people out in hordes.  Mind you, this is a weekday, when people are usually "at work!" But add a National strike and a beautiful day into the picture and this is what you will see on the day before spring at the parc!
