Big flood!

If you were in Paris at the moment (maybe you are!) you'd hear people complain about the terrible weather, for sure... Today I had to go to the left bank to meet an old friend of PDP and, well, I passed by the Louvre and almost drowned the engine of my scooter there! Here is why! And this shot was not taken after a big storm, just the result of a non stop rain! There are worst things in life, but it's really getting my nerves! Time to go back to Miami?!

  1. Wow! It looks like the rains have overpowered Paris' drainage capacity. But, you got an excellent photo.

    1. You got an excellent photo, but I think the Paris drainage capacity has good performances (compare to all the rain we had)!!!

    1. Nope, it was the "new" Angelina, at the Sénat museum - where they currently have the Chagall exhibit.

    2. She's gone already Drummond. She saw the weather and thought "what am I doing here, when I could lay in the sun in Rio?!"

  6. Yikes—be careful with that camera, mon ami! If it makes you feel any better, the forecast for Miami is thunderstorms for the next 7 days at least. Stay dry . . . you too, Monica!

  7. Drummond and Alexa, I left Paris but not because of the weather! Not many cities can look as good as PAris under the rain. I simply love it!!!!!
