I was wondering when I'd be so blasé about walking in the rain when I noticed it began to fall a little harder, the city folk quickened their pace and the energy changed. Raindrops intermingled with small flecks of white and before long giant snowflakes draped the landscape. In an instant, the sky was a magnificent spray of white. Excuse my gushing, but this was my first witness of a real-ish snowfall in Paris, it was like seeing snow for the first time!
I have a feeling Parisians would deny it ever snowed. After all, it didn't stick, there was hardly a trace afterwards and it left as quickly as it came... but it did, it really snowed for the most magical twenty minutes - and I have photos to prove it ;)
