Word of the Day: Péripherique

14 Sep

Péripherique (nm) –

French: beltway, ring road
As in “Doesn’t that sign on the side of the road look like a beltline? Do you think that’s what péripherique means? Wouldn’t it be easier to try that than to navigate through downtown?”

We know this now. It is much easier to take the péripherique.

Un péripherique.

    hahaha … the peripherique. I could have told you that one. Paris is so much fun. Even by car. You just have to drive like all those other crazy Parisians and not worry about any bumps in your bumper. Don’t ever use the handbreak, just put your car in gear. In that way it moves back and forward when people try to parallel park and bump your car = less damage :)
