I am sitting in my living room enjoying a cup of coffee and dark chocolate. It's a cloudy and wet day in my corner of the world but I like the idea of the rain cleaning my windows. I can see that one of my neighbours, probably an optimist, started fixing his roof this morning but I believe he just declared himself defeated by the rain.
Speaking of the rain, I was going through my Paris photos and decided to share with you a few rainy looking ones. I think Paris is one of those cities that are just as lovely in the rain. When I took the last photo, of the Louvre pyramid, there was a downpour but the passages by the Palais Royal garden provided shelter.
