If you happen to live in France, 9pm to 10:30pm tonight is possibly the best time of the decade to:
- Safely drive a formula 1 at top speed through Paris.
- Play a little soccer game with your friends on the Champs-Elysées, possibly using the Arc de Triomphe as goal.
- Have unimpeded sex on top of the Pyramide du Louvre.
- Rob Banco do Brazil’s headquarters in Paris with a bottle opener and a shopping cart.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for a quiet romantic evening, I’d stay out of Brazilian restaurants.
Anyway: we’ll be on the Pont des Arts with some fine food and a bottle of red wine, enjoying the quieter surroundings until late, quite likely all night, if Brazil’s pummelling of the French goes as planned.
