The Luxembourg gardens have a multitude of activities for both adults and children. Adults can play chess or boule or tennis or take courses on bees and honey production. For kids there are tons of things among which a theatre, the various play grounds, peddle driven go carts, merry-go rounds, tennis and then there are these ponies - a donkey among them.
There is often a line for the pony rides but it goes fast. The parents race along ahead taking photos of their children. The ponies stink so bad it is a good thing that the rides are so short.
