Number 6

There are some moments when I absolutely love Paris and want to live here forever. This morning, for example, when I took la ligne 6 (number 6 metro line) towards Bir Hakeim, I was ready to drop the whole moving to Melbourne idea once and for all.

The number 6 metro in the Charles de Gaulle Etoile direction runs overland for most part, instead of underground. On a cold winter’s morning like this morning, this meant that I was greeted by a misty view of the Eiffel Tower backlit by a red tinged sunrise.

It was enough to make a grown man cry.

Or make a grown woman never want to move back to Melbourne.
