Parking, the French way!


Our family was in Toulouse this past weekend for the last Stake Super Samedi.  Saturday night Aaron and I went out to dinner with our friends, Elias and Aurore.  We went into centre ville Toulouse.  Parking is always hard to find in France.  I always get a little nervous when it comes to parking.  The French park anywhere and everywhere!  Some parking is paid parking, other spots one just creates and parks.  Elias was driving and he passed this little parking spot in the above photo thinking he could not fit!  After going around the corner he decided to back up (when I say he backed up, I mean he drove in reverse, fast! We found out that someone taking “drivers education” in France has to know how to drive in reverse!)

Elias came upon this very small parking spot and actually got himself to fit.  He only had about 2-3 inches in front and bumper to pole in the back.  His back wheels were up on the curb just a little.  Aaron and I chuckled!  Elias and Aurore did not give it a second thought!
