over christmas the city of paris set up about a dozen old-fashioned carrousels around town that were both awesome to look at and free to ride! we found as many as we could--they were all different and had their own character, and it was always such a pleasure to discover one. to go with the horses on the carrousels, we also found a real-life pony for astrid to ride! and, in addition to all that, we also visited a giant antique carnival games museum, which was like visiting an upper-class mardi gras world (no offense to new orleans). it all added up to an extra dimension of fun in the city of light!
