I sat down in the park and ate the sandwhich that i’d bought.
It tasted very good. Then something happened, something difficult to describe.
Sitting there, alone in a foreign country, far from my job and everyone I know,
a feeling came over me. It was like remembering something I’d never known before,
or had always been waiting for, but I didn’t know what. Maybe it was something I’d forgotten or something I’ve been missing all my life. All I can say is that I felt, at the same time, joy and sadness. But not too much sadness because I felt alive. Yes, alive. That was the moment I fell in love with Paris. And I felt Paris fall in love with me.
