It keeps raining every five minutes and I have to work tonight anyway, but I walked down the street to the Place de la Bastille while my clothes were in the washer, which is called multitasking while technically doing nothing. Win-win! This is the GĂ©nie de la LibertĂ© (the "Spirit of Freedom") atop the July Column in the center of the square.

It's very exciting to celebrate someone else's national holiday for a change.

&/c.: This is "Bastille Day in the Rain from a Window Way Up High" Day. Totally natural soporific!
