Un Flâneur dans la Ville (Weekend Street/Reflections # 11)

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
 

"The French Quarter is an official district of Philadelphia, designated by the city, stretching between 17th and 19th streets east and west and Walnut and Sansom streets north to south. The designation was formalized in 1999. According to City Paper, the French Quarter of Philadelphia "... is one of the few places outside of France to support a flourishing French culture" although "it remains largely unknown to tourists and locals alike. "

"Le quartier français est un quartier officiel de Philadelphie, désigné par la ville, qui s'étend entre les 17e et 19e rues est et ouest et les rues Walnut et Sansom du nord au sud. La désignation a été officialisée en 1999. Selon City Paper , le quartier français de Philadelphie "... est l'un des rares endroits hors de France à soutenir une culture française florissante " même si "il reste largement méconnu des touristes et des autochtones".

En attente d'un retour à la vie normale ?(Weekend Street/Reflections # 9)

 

Paris, France

In February of 2020 this woman was waiting for a bus, but I imagine she's now waiting for a return of normal life.

Compared to a lot of places, life in my city has remained fairly normal. No lockdowns have been enforced, people enjoy the beach and go to restaurants. Masks are optional outside but most business require them to be worn inside. Thankfully, we haven't had a major Covid problem here. Less than 5% of the population have been infected, and for those infected, the survival rate is nearly 100%.

Hopefully everyone will enjoy freedom again soon.
