Ciel! Mon Paris!

? ? Paris has a lousy weather. Undeniable. At par with London or Brussels (Both cities I love too). Yet, all of a sudden, the sun comes out, flimsy skirts start walking briskly on the streets, the cafés’ “terrasses” fill up, and the clouds start dancing in blue and white! ?…

Paris Time Patrol. Final countdown…

“Louvre, Pavillon de Flore, early 21st century.” “Captain, if I may?” “Yes, Scotty. You may.” “We’re running out of fuel, Sir, I mean material.” “I know Scotty. There’s probably only one post left.
