While I am in London, thought I might surprise you with something unexpected: the local rugby lads in the thick of a fast-paced game on a muddy field. The rugby club is located in the Bois du Boulogne, just a few metres from Hippodrome de Longchamp. I am a big rugby fan; Stade Francais (Paris) is my favourite local team. They play at Stade Jean Bouin next door to Parc des Princes. It is just a ten-minute walk from Roland Garros, home of the French Open. Within easy walking distance of the apartment, one can watch live horse racing, tennis, rugby or water-skiing on the Seine.
