May trip

We are going to Paris May 6-16th.
Could anyone comment on events during these dates?
(Any pending strikes-heaven forbid?)
Are the flowers out yet?
We have been to Paris before and look forward to walking miles and miles, taking pictures and eating.

The 8th and 15th are both holidays, so those weekends will probably be pretty busy in Paris.

Have a wonderful trip!

There may be strikes of public-sector workers on May 16 to protest the suppression of the Pentecost holiday. There is talk of it, but so far no official "advance notice" by labor unions.

Hi M,

>Are the flowers out yet?<

They will be when you get there.

You might want to visit the Parc Monceau.

Thank you grand-mere, Dave and Ira.
We are leaving to-night.
Will check out Monceaux park for sure.

Trying only to be helpful (to everyone) and kind at the same time with this...

... and so, I'd rather offer you help with your next post. This is not my "rule" nor finger-wagging - - it's what Fodors itself asks you to do - - quoting from item 6 on their "HELP" webpage...


"Finally, create a title - make sure it is concise and clearly describes your message (and destination, if applicable..."


(my own added emphasis)

So, if and when you re-post this question, mention Paris... please? for the benefit of all on this board...

Best wishes,
