I had almost given up hope this year. Eventually with only two months delay I am able to put away my Sub Zero Down Ski jacket that I have been wearing since November now everyday. Just when we almost got used to the nightmare, temperatures rose for the first time this year above 5 degrees this weekend and it stoppped raining as well. Actually the thermometer showed 25 degrees, and so spring was simply skipped this year and we moved directly from winter to summer within one day. Sorry for the boring topic, the wheather. But no. It is amazing how sudden sunshine has the capacity to change my mood and thoughts. From one day to the other I have given up plans to leave this city, country or even the whole continent, to move to the carribean forever. Paris (probably like any other place in the world ?) becomes an irresistable city in the sun, and thoughts about one day opening a little bistrot here (why move to Provence ?) even crossed my mind.
Just 10 minutes walk from my home, the Luxembourg garden below, where Parisiens and tourists relax in a beautiful setting, as soon as the sun is out.
