French toast makes it through tough French weather
FOUR French toast shops in France have reopened after the French government declared a state of emergency because of high temperatures.
The shops reopened on Wednesday after a four-day lockdown, with the French capital being put on a 24-hour state of alert.
There are only around 20 remaining restaurants and restaurants that serve food in the capital.
The French government has also ordered stores and restaurants to close at 5 p.m. local time on Thursday, because of the rising temperatures.
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Twitter that the government will continue to maintain the country’s emergency situation in order to protect public health.
French President Emmanuel Macron also tweeted that Paris was ready to fight back, but said he would not make any drastic changes to the way French life works.
“We will not compromise on our safety and our way of life,” Macron said in a tweet.
