Nothing too crazy tonight. Just a walk and some people watching after dinner. Ran into some strange creatures (pictured). Crossed the Pont des Arts, where crowds of young people plant themselves in the evening, have a picnic, or pass the bottle. I love cities where young people gather by the water. I feel like I never see a cool places in the states where people congregate at night in a safe and spirited environment. Though I guess I've never lived near a river or an ocean front.
I was thinking about that position I mentioned earlier where one person steps aside while the other 'deals' with someone. I notice this happens when you're with a friend and they run into someone that they know on the street that you don't know. So you sort of step aside. Eventually you're introduced before going your separate ways. Or you aren't introduced and you do that awkward nod goodbye and then your friend explains how he and that person used to work at the library together in college or something. Anyway, yeah. What was I talking about? Oh, Paris. Yes, beautiful city. I'm definitely going to have to come back and see more of it. Next time I'm coming back with money... and a date.
Speaking of money, I didn't realize that my ATM card expired in June. Turns out Washington Mutual will not send me a replacement internationally. Fortunately I'm also carrying an ATM card for my business account and they transferred some money into it. I love it when my "plan B's" successfully go into action.
Tomorrow night, Barcelona, Spain.
