How to play at ducks and drakes on the Canal Saint-Martin in Paris
Do you remember that Amelie finds contentment in simple pleasures? She likes putting her hand in a bag of seeds, piercing the crust of sugar with the tip of a spoon, and play at ducks and drakes on the Saint-Martin-canal.

Follow the example of Amelie and throw stones in the water. You just need to come to Saint-Martin-canal. You can find pebbles on the road or next to a canal.

Where to do?
