Happy Silly Tuesday !

La devise de Paris : elle est battue par les flots mais ne sombre pas

Gull life is not easy. When the food is caught in the middle of the flood, the traffic sign prohibits swimming.

J'espère vraiment, pour tous les parisiens, que le niveau va commencer à baisser pour libérer les maisons et que les gens qui ont dû quitter leur toit puissent retrouver un peu de paix, même s'il va y avoir du boulot pour remettre au propre
