The blue bottle

In the increasingly ridiculous local paper today I read that Hull is better than Paris. Et bien, à chacun son goût! But there are similarities for, on our delightful rive droite, close by the tidal barrier there's a space with seating where les philosophes meet to admire the view and drink cheap, synthetic, industrial strength cider from a big blue bottle. Did someone not say delusion is the first of all pleasures?


  1. One wonders if the paper's owned by someone who feels a desperate need at boosterism.

  2. Mais bien sur! Paris has its share of bums, as does Pasadena, I hate to say.
