With the good weather in Paris come the open windows. They open wide and all day long, it seems. What a contrast to the United States, where air conditioning rules. It's a beautiful and charming sight, and a great way to get a peep inside. I heard that summer here didn't live up to its name, and so I imagine residents are taking every advantage to let in all the fresh air, light and warm breeze they can before the return of the "normal" weather later this week.
