"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

Un Jour en Banlieue

Nothing says 'summer vacation' better than a BBQ in the wilderness of the Suburbs of Paris! Hot weather, great friends, cold drinks, half a ton of beer bottles and an inflatable pool. What more could you want?
Leaving La Défense behind, to venture into the town of Rueil-Malmaison! Real suburb feeling! But where are all the burning cars?
Trying to inflate the inflatable pool. Who doesn*t enjoy to blow in the hot sun and faint into the grass afterwards.

The boys went into the nearby forest to gather firewood, just like in ancient times
Ooga! Me make big fire!
Drunk on a swing...
A harmony of taste and smoke, tofu and meat side by side
Kiss the cook!
Let down your hair, oh Rapunzel!
after having been thrown into the pool earlier on, with my clothes on (mmmh cold water in the shade, brrrr), I had to let my pants and stuff dry in the sun, while parading around in a flowery sarong, so that i wouldn*t harm peoples eyes with my purple g-string (aka bathing suit, lol)
Beer in the pool, how macho man!
Don*t look at me while I make my garden entrance
Oh and now for some water fight! Watering the flowers later on expanded into watering the people

(the camera survived)
Sending Wicked out to the open waters
"Look what I can do with my skin!" -Benjamin, I am so proud of your skin skills!
Watch out for low flying people, the suburbs are filled with em
What better stuff to light an evening fire with, than your old math papers?
Et partis les bouteilles..
Do the sarong dance, baby!
Sing that song one more time!

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
