Paris, on a Cloudy Day (First Friday of July 2012)

The Iconic River

Why is self so fascinated by cloudy skies?

Yesterday, self walked from the Palais Royal, through the Louvre (You must be crazy to think self would want to pay to stand in a ten-deep crowd in front of the Mona Lisa!  Sorry, self’s time is precious!), through the Jardin du Tuileries, and down several bridges.

There was thunder and lightning and a regular downpour —  but, self’s luck held because the rain did not really begin to come down in earnest until she was almost back to the apartment.

A week from today is self’s birthday.  She always wanted to celebrate it in the City of Light.  Perhaps next year.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
