If you’re visiting France this weekend, I apologize. There’s a canicule (heat wave) across the entire country. Paris is especially miserable because of the lack of air-conditioning and, thanks to all of the beautiful stone buildings and roads, the city tends to retain heat like a pizza oven. The good news is by next week temperatures will be back to normal. Other than essential café outings and trips to the grocery store (bigger ones are air-conditioned), we will be locking ourselves inside the apartment, with the mobile AC unit on full blast. It’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 25 include a list of six Parisian mansions you can stay in, glimpses of the Hubert de Givenchy auction, and a guide to Paris in the summer. Enjoy!
