Autumn leaves - they’re really the same everywhere, piles of crisp brown deadness, or slush if it rains. But the best atmosphere they conjure must be in Paris. Spend the day kicking through piles of dead leaves in the Jardin de Luxembourg or Parc Vincennes and finish off the afternoon with a Feuille Morte cocktail (Pastis, Grenadine and Mint) in a bar on Place de la Contrescarpe before walking the streets all full of chestnuts roasting on braziers and end up at Bistrot Au Tramway for dinner.

You made me nostalgic, suddenly I miss France, I miss Paris, the mildly sad Autumn atmosphere. I like this photo of Place de la Contrescarpe. At least we have the chestnuts roasting on braziers also here.
