From carousels, Punch-and-Judy shows, and ice creams in the park, to sailing boats in the bassin in the Luxembourg gardens or the occasional circus, we older folk can partake of at least some of these delights and feel young at heart again.

Hemingway himself, with his young son Bumby, must have partaken in many of these timeless rituals, from the 100-year old hand-cranked carousels still in existence in the Luxembourg Gardens and the Champ de Mars to the Punch-and-Judy shows also in these parks, not to mention the occasional ice cream cone.
