Last night, after an early dinner, we hopped onto our bikes and rode out to the Bois de Vincennes. It is a large wooded area in the east of the 12th arrondissement that used to be a favourite hunting grounds for the Kings of France. It is now public park with trails throughout and many different attractions like the Château de Vincennes, hippodrome, zoo, etc. Unfortunately the zoo is closed for renovations until the 2013! We were really disappointed because Sydney and Norah would have loved it. From the outside it looked like a fantastic zoo too. I guess we will have to see it next time we are in Paris. Anyway, we didn’t see any attractions this time. We only biked through a small loup in the trails, stopping by a little stream to let the girls run around and play. Next time we will go farther, maybe take a picnic with us on a Saturday morning so we can see more.
