The Hypnotic Appeal of a Wet Paris

It has been raining in Paris for what seems like all of April and May, so if you’re like Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris and love la pluie then Paris is the place for you right now. But even if you don’t enjoy walking around in the pouring rain and are not of the mind that the city is at it’s most beautiful when it is raining, it is hard to deny the attractive gleam of Paris when it is wet.

All that being said, enough already Paris. You look pretty good in the sunlight too.
