“Real Parisians don’t use umbrellas.” my French friend told me. The weather here is so unpredictable that it’s a hassle to keep whipping out your flimsy umbrella and then fighting to close it every time you get into the metro. I’ve decided to embrace it. Especially now that the weather is warmer, I don’t mind it much. I actually like Paris in the rain because there’s no one on the streets and I feel like I have the whole city to myself.
