I am travelling and have not had time to concentrate on my favourite challenge, Paris in July, hosted by Thyme for Tea. However, having not read anything French, and I promised to read French books this year, it is still to come.
However, France has been showing itself from a good side as regards sports recently. I went to Halle in mid-June with my son, to watch the tennis tournament there. It was really great, and we saw a lot of good tennis players. One, new to me, was Lucas Pouille. He lost in his first game in Halle to excellent player Key Nishikori. However, in this year's Wimbledon he made a really good run and went all the way to the quarter finals where he lost to Tomas Berdych from Czech Republic. Also other French players like Tsonga, Mahut, Benneteau and Roger-Vasselin made it a long way into the tournament.
The other big sport event, except Tour de France, which I am not that interested in, is the Euro football tournament. France has made it to the final and I hold my thumbs they will win. I think it was a long time ago.
Back in Brussels on Sunday evening and hoping to finish some of my French novels, have time to listen to some French music and maybe watch a French movie. On Netflix there is a French TV-series that I started to watch, Marseille, with Gerard Depardieu and I will try to look through it.
What are you up to as regards French things for Paris in July?
