Paris Girl wishes U were here! French former minister of culture Jack Lang chats with Henri Chapier at Place Denfert Rochereau before the parade gets underway. Parisgirl arrives just before they cordone off the two VIPS ‘just for the media’. Doesn’t Jack have a million dollar smile? And who wouldn’t be smiling today – the grey drizzle has been pushed aside by dazzling sun. It’s hard not to grin from ear-to-ear in this Mardi Gras ambiance. Free hugs are there for the asking. Paris never looked so MARVELOUS, simply MARVELOUS.

Note: If you viewed this post earlier, you may have seen that one of the photos was mis-identified (thanks to a helpful gend’arme who told me that Michou was the person talking with former minister of culture Jacques Lang. Luckily, a friend quickly pointed out that Henri Chapier is a well known journalist who hosts a television talk show. Sorry for that mix-up!
