They found themselves next to the bois de Boulogne, a huge wooded park which formed the western extremity of the city. A quiet road led them around the hippodrome d'Auteuil, one of the park's main attractions, along with enclosed flower gardens, a lake with a flotilla of rowboats for hire, and countless facilities for distracting children. The other things for which the bois de Boulogne was notorious were less salutary, particularly its flourishing trade in prostitution.
