After landing in France on Monday night, the mayor will attend seven events related to the shootings at Charlie Hebdo and the Hypercacher kosher market — including two wreath-layings and a meeting with his Parisian counterpart, Anne Hidalgo — before flying back to New York on Tuesday evening. "[De Blasio] will stand in solidarity with our friends in Paris and across France to send the clear message that together we will fight terrorism and anti-Semitism at every turn, and that crude attempts to intimidate free expression will not succeed," read a statement announcing the trip, which sounds considerably less relaxing than his last European jaunt.
