I am back to the land of the green figure for pedestrian crossing instead of a white one.
Back to the land of people not smiling to strangers in the street.
Of the subway that makes you run for the "dernier train".
Of the city that does sleep at night.
Of the 24h time format.
Of buddies drinking and laughing in the streets and by the river.
Of the trees in the streets.
Of the boulangeries and patisseries.
Of the beautiful old buildings.
Of the eternal movie shooting in the streets.
Of the pharmacies that are actually pharmacies and don't sell alcohol or cigarettes.
Of the little cafes with tables on the pavement and chairs facing the street.
Of the Fontaine Saint Michel, Rue Mouffetard, Montmartre.
Of my old neighborhood.
Just for a day. And a night. A beautiful night.
