WIFI al fresco

This is kinda neat. I’m sitting in the little park behind Notre Dame, with its bells ringing in 5:30 like crazy (is there a mass?), and I’m logged into WordPress.

You see, in spite of France generally moving like an escargot when it comes to web technology, the City of Paris bucked the trend by setting up WIFI  in a bunch of its parks and squares (and librairies). And since the Vancouver-like monsoon rains ended today, the weather outside is almost springlike, making typing outside bearable, even pleasant.

The one hiccup: parks here close at sundown, so now I’m being kicked out. Wah!
