Here’s an impression of what Paris looks like on a cold winter evening!
My mother and I visited the city last December, a few days after Christmas 2013 and just before New Year’s. It wasn’t actually that late into the night, probably no later than half past 7.
It’s weird going through these photos in the middle of summer, it certainly doesn’t make me look forward to next winter…
On the other hand, this also reminds me of the insane amount of crêpes I consumed during those few days. Oh yeah.
