Oh, how completely different today's post and photo is, compared to how I planned and hoped it would be. Tomorrow is Bastille Day, or France's National Day, so tonight and tomorrow night, several fire stations around in Paris are hosting big parties, called "Bals des Pompiers de Paris." I had one mission for tonight. That mission was to go to one of these parties, have a drink and take a photo of one smoking hot firefighter. They are, as I have read somwhere, seen as major sex symbols here in Paris (and I won't argue that!). Anyways, I chose the fire station close to Église Saint-Sulpice in the 6th arrondissement. The queue you can see on today's photo is about 1/5 of the whole line of people waiting to get in. I probably don't need to say I wasn't up for that, no matter how sexy the firefighters. But what I need to say is: Mission failed!
