After almost a year in France I’m still experiencing nuances in the day to day life that I was not aware of. Today we went to the park for the boys to play and at the edge of the field there was a man who was exercising and practicing his stance for diving off a diving board into a swimming pool. He made sure to stretch and even did a few pushups. What I found interesting was that there is no swimming pool at this park but he was diligently preparing, he was even wearing the proper swim attire for the public swimming pool, a Speedo.
One of the reasons I don’t go to the swimming pool is because I don’t own a Speedo. But we were told the reason that Speedo’s are required is because other bathing suits can be worn outside when you are playing a game in the field. Well I have to say that this gentleman today has proven that you can also exercise in the park wearing a Speedo.
I still don’t think I’m going to be swimming at the pool in Massy but we are glad that the warm weather has arrived, even if the Speedo’s came with it.
Glad the weather is warming up. Perhaps we should send you some of our Pennsylvania heat. Just when you get it all figured out – you’ll be heading to Cameroon to learn new things.
