Looking through the stalls at Marché d'Aligre on a Sunday morning, I saw this man just lounging on his motorcycle (zoom-zoom), probably just waiting for customers.



I titled this "Chillin"* but wondered if there was a French expression equivalent. I will change it if someone will tell me. changed it thanks to much reader assistance. It was Malyss who gave me several suggestions, and "glander" seemed the best fit. I also liked the Italian "dolce farniente" for the way it rolls off your tongue. What other languages have an expression for this?





*Chillin' = chilling = slang for "taking it easy"

French - glander

Italian - dolce far niente

Dutch - unitrusten

Czech - leháro or flákáni
