what to wear… what to wear…

It is impossible to dress properly for fall in Paris.

Outside it is chilly with a bitter wind.

Inside, it is approximately 100 degrees… Celsius.

In museums, tourist sites and stores you get to peel off at least one layer then lug that extra garment around (which makes your arm hot). And if you take the Metro… it’s like spending some time in a moving underground sauna. With your clothes on. By the time you get back up to the sidewalk, you are covered in sweat. Mixed with the cool air, that’s got to be a recipe for getting sick.

Maybe this is why French women all wear scarves. Easy on, easy off.
