As winter storm on the east coast goes away, it reminds me of prettier time during my visit to Paris. I spent there a few days, walking for hours every day and exploring different parts of the city. It is so huge and so much to see, in those few days I only scratched a small surface of it all.
During my first evening I made my way to the Eifel Tower right around sunset, hoping to get good light. I’m glad I went there on that night, as it is the only day when I saw any sun. Every other day Paris was showing to me its grey overcast side.
While taking photos around Eifel Tower, couple young girls tried to scam me out of some cash. They were walking around with a notepad collecting names for some kind of petition. Being a nice tourist I identified myself as something like “John Smith from NYC”. Then she started demanding cash to donate to their cause. When I offered some change in US coins, she said that they only take larger amount, to which I told her that is all I have. She was not happy and quickly figured out that she will not get anything out of me, turned around and went to hunt another target. A few minutes later I saw someone else filling her petition.
