It had to leak out...

The story did not make it to the news so much, but the thing is that about two weeks ago a huge leak damaged  no less than 12 000 books in the National Library (which is located in these big buildings in the background). Fortunately none of them were totally destroyed... Only a few (1,500) will have to receive a special treatment such as... - who would have known... - freeze drying! 


  1. That'll take time for the library crews to get sorted out.

    Beautiful capture

  2. Glad none were destroyed, but it'll take time to restore them.

    Excellent photo! Makes it seem like I'm on a small boat, floating the flood waters.

  3. I loved my visit to this library when I was in Paris.
