Frame: It’s Always Sunny in Paris
This year, June in Paris has been unseasonably cold with bouts of rain. But without fail, each day of our trip was sunny at 10pm. This was discombobulating and frustrating as we tried to adjust to the six hour time change. Ten at night looked like 7pm, but felt like 3am. We found ourselves being very Parisian without even trying, strolling out to dinner at 9:30pm and sleeping late each morning. (Note: In Boston, the coveted dinner reservation time is 7:30. In Paris, it’s 9:30.)
One of my fears about the trip was that the weather would be horrible, but the 60 degree days were very conducive to our excessive walking and eating. The rain managed to contain itself to periods when we were inside, save for one romantic thunderstorm during a walk down Rue Montorgueil.
Truthfully, as my mother (and Audrey Hepburn) says: “Paris is always a good idea,” no matter what the weather.
