Evan and I stumbled upon this sweet schoolyard near the Hotel de Ville and couldn't stop talking about how great it would be to send our children to a school with a similar playground. Isn't it pretty? It was clearly designed to incorporate nature, and it's such a peaceful place.
School wasn't in session then, but I imagine it has a calming effect on children. Of course the children in my fantasy were impeccably dressed, polite and nothing like real children.
