Don't Walk on the Grass
I took some pictures at the Jardin D'Acclimatation today. The Jardin is a wonderful amusement park for kids. So it always takes my American sensibility by surprise to see signs like these....

I am still getting used to walking through a "garden" here and not seeing anyone on the grass. I was walking through the Jardin du Luxembourg and it always cracks me up to see everyone sitting in those chairs just on the edge of the grass. How do they control themselves not walk on it? It might have something to do with the person that I have seen who has the whistle and blows it at offending small children who have wandered onto the forbidden zone.

Next time your friend gets a new band, make sure she asks to have the watch face polished. It's a nice extra the Swatch folks do for free if you ask.
