Les Halles and the Mist in Paris

After walking for the last 20 minutes between the shade of the buildings and the sun, our body temperatures mounted. On this warm, July morning we were sitting in the shade chatting before going into Les Halles. Without warning we received a lovely surprise: a light mist spouted forth from the fountain in the Jardin Nelson Mandela. It lowered our body temperatures and the air around us. We were ready to attack the book section at FNAC!
