Travel tips VII: hot wine in the gardens of Paris

Picnics in the autumn, between sips of vin chaud. Programão for tourists

Autumn in Europe has pleasant temperatures, tending to the cold (for the standards of a carioca).

The end of the season, primarily, is the perfect time to try out the vin chaud — a mulled wine, like our quentão, which is sold in many kiosks scattered around Paris.

Don't be ashamed

Although it may seem a sacrilege (for wine lovers) vin chaud it is a success and goes well on cold days.

Made with a mixture of wine, fruit, sugar, cloves and cinnamon, it can be found in virtually the entire city.

Do not be ashamed to prove. If you see a kiosk of snacks, you can be sure that the vin chaud will be among the drink options, even though they are still nine in the morning. It is a sales success.

In the gardens

Anyone who has visited the The City Of Light know that its gardens are a spectacle. In The garden of Luxembourg (my favorite) there is a kiosk where, at certain times, there is even a queue to ask for the drink.

The hundreds of tourists that take their lawns, open their towels, and spread their tidbits, not above in proving the delicacy. Some say that this is very program of tourist. Thanks be to God!
