no joke, paris as been this gloomy for about 3 weeks!
but i took the velib' to an appointment anyway. the air was cold, but i liked it and it's always so much fun on those bikes. the trip to my destination, my seat wouldn't stay up. then when i got it to stay, it ended up crooked. on the way back home i ended up getting one with a messed up chain and it would pop every pump i gave. i ended up spotting a flower shop right next to a velib' and direct metro station home. i gave up the runny nose and cold fingers for some flowers and a metro home.
these really made my day. when the clerk asked me if they were a gift, i said yes. but i didn't say the gift was for me.
