Paris, Place de la Bastille – July 25 – 90° F:
When it’s so hot in the city, Parisians don’t have the strength to complain any longer (it’s a fact). Unlike New Yorkers, they are not used to high temperatures. It’s like transferring a delicate wild creature out of its natural habitat and installing it in a totally unknown eco-system where it can’t adapt. And, when Diabolo Menthe or Pastis can’t do their refreshing job…the end is probably near.
