A Stroll on a Tightrope Stretched Across the Seine

[youtube][/youtube] April 6 was the scene of water events in Paris; Paris Marathon runners sweat a lot and crossed the Seine on a bridge. Watching from the Charles de Gaulle bridges that links the Gare de Lyon and the Gare d’Austerlitz, Denis Josselin crossed the Seine on a tightrope. ParisiannewsTV made a video that includes an interview with Denis Josselin with English subtitles.

The river Seine is busy year round with boats and activities.I found out about the tightrope walker on the Paris Mayor’s office website “Que faire à Paris“. Click on “Une semaine à Paris en un clic” (One week in Paris in one click) Voilà you now speak French :-) Use Google Translate to decipher the timeline.

The Ports of Paris (available in English) held the “Vog’en Seine” event with special deals on the tourist boats. Information for other Seine events is at Loisirs en Seine (available in English).
