Obvious State

My Account


So we spent all day Saturday stomping around in the rain (and sometimes in protest of the rain). It didn't let up, but we made the best of it. Despite being wet and cold, I love Paris in the rain at night. The reflection of the lights on the wet street is magical. It's funny, because the way I feel about Paris in the rain is exactly opposite of how I feel about New York City in the rain. And for those of you who have lived there and suffered from "cab spray," (rogue wave?) you know exactly what I am talking about.

stunning. i couldn't be more jealous. my brother is actually there as well right now and he's of course loving it as well.

i could not agree more about paris vs nyc in rain. it's raining here in manhattan and there is nothing romantic about it… but in paris, sigh…

Here in Vancouver it's the bus spray that'll getcha. You think you've been hit once, then three more sets of wheels slosh by…

Oh how I miss seeing the red metro signs! We also had a raining night when I was in Paris back in Oct. It was raining after mass let out at Norte Dame and I played in the rain like a little girl. Enjoy your time over there.

Aren't you supposed to order yourself rain on your first day in Paris anyway?
So glad to see you're back in the lovely Paris.
