Great Blue Whales Beaches Itself in Paris...

on the left bank - actually a statue of a giant blue whale to bring the point home about species extinctions during the Paris Climate Conference - another unique Paris sight for current visitors along with the icebergs - if not melted yet - in front of the Pantheon:

I might probably enjoy these reports of yours more thoroughly if you wrote them from a personal perspective, instead of just reprinting what others might or might not have seen.

Why do you persist in pining away for Paris?

I see something I have not heard about and think folks interested in Paris like moi would like to read it.

I see nothing bad about that as you do - better I say nothing and folks who may be in Paris or going there miss out on it - I reject your take - what harm does it do.

What harm does it do - I love Paris and yes pine for it - thanks for the uplifting comments! Lose the attitude, SVP. Let others have their fun as long as no one gets hurt.

Cheers!

Hope you have a nice Bouche de Noel on Christmas Eve!

Vaut mieux une bouche de Noël qu'une bouche d'égoût.

There is also

PalenQ - surely you recognize that I'm not being totally serious, just as I realize how much you enjoy posting tidbits from Paris. I just wish you were here to give a better in-person report, which would surely be much more entertaining.

Rest assured that I will certainly enjoy a good " bûche de Noël" - and hope you do the same - though I doubt seriously that I could actually "eat a whole mouthful of Christmas".
Joyeuses fêtes a tous, et pax vobiscum.
