“It’s better in the rain!”


Have any of you seen the (not very new) Woody Allen movie “Midnight in Paris”? What to say about Owen Wilson… I think we can all agree that Wedding Crashers was his peak, no? Can you name anything else remotely good the guy’s been in?!

All acting “skills” (I use the term loosely) aside, there’s a cliche that’s perpetuated throughout the whole film about how Paris is much more beautiful in the rain. Well, it’s been raining for the past week and a half, and I’m not so sure I agree. Maybe it’s more beautiful if you’re inside/in front of a fireplace/have a fireplace to begin with/have heating that actually works, but I will tell you firsthand that schlepping 45 minutes to and from class in a grey drizzle is not as glamorous as it’s made out to be.

A photo I took yesterday near the Champs-Élysées.

This is me reminiscing on better days (okay, about a week ago) where the sun was shining and the weather was sweeeeet!



Vive la France!
