#PARIS COUNTDOWN #LOCKDOWN : 11 DAYS to GO MAY 1st, 2020 – LABOR DAY!

 

   Paris Always Walk Independent Tours  is offering, virtually, to  you a glimpse of the unique #Montmartre #Paris  in  #lockdown
    Countdown, starting today, till the ease of #confinement on May 11, 2020 .
    Come along- when ever will be possible for you- to #discover and #explore this bohemian quarter of #city of #love : Montmartre Village.
    Today, May 1, 2020, the French tradition is to offer to your dear ones  ‘Muguet’  /  Lily of the Valley.
    Lily of the Valley’s   history  goes back in the  16th century, when  Charles IX, King of France, received a  bouquet de muguet on the 1st of May.
    Ever since, this delicate flower has become a symbol of beginning of the spring, of good time, with ‘ return to happiness’ /’ retour de bonheur’
   Paris Always Walk Independent Tours is offering you a virtual  ‘bouquet de muguet’ with best wishes of health and  happy.
One of the most  rewarding moment, after  going uphill on ‘ Butte de Montmartre’  reaching #SacreCoeur  Basilica, closed since the #lockdown, on March 17, 2020, is the outstanding  panorama view of #Paris.
#Paris is on the 49th day of #confinement with empty streets and famous spots  such as   Place de Tertre , known as ‘ Place des Artistes’

Going downhill , towards the north of ‘ Butte de Montmartre’  tiny streets  and  secret gardens will  send you back in the history.
During  #lockdown, with no traffic, the birds  are performing for you their joy of being undisturbed.
 Once, an animated square, ‘ Place des Abbesses’ deserted at the present,  seems more like a painting of an unknown yet artist.
