When East meets West

This year again, the wealthy families from the Middle East have elected the Champs-Elysées as their main vacation destination. Day long shopping, coffes on the terraces, luxury cars, but also a lot of social activity going on. Indeed young women and men take the opportunity to meet each other on the Avenue, which is often quite a difficult or prohibited event in their home country. I guess that these summer Holidays in Paris will lead to an increase of happy weddings in the Middle East. (click on picture to enlarge)

    Thanks Dimitri. I thought about putting no comments but I think a background is necessary so the meaning of the image is not mis-interpretated.

    Très réussie, elle a un impact particulièrement fort, aussi bien visuel que sociétal.
