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 Génie de la Liberté (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!
