Paris is Apparently All About Being Drunk on Random Bridges

Yesterday we went to the bridge where Carrie and Big had their final scene in the series finale of SATC. Naturally, it's a haven for young, beautiful French people to drink wine and smoke hash until they are running up and down the planks singing the French national anthem at the top of their lungs. It is a cool spot, right near Pont Neuf - the oldest bridge in France. I'm not sure the name of this bridge, but it only allows pedestrian traffic, and it's made of these rickety wooden planks despite the fact that it's huge. It stretches across the Seine, with the Eiffel Tower in the background, and everyone just sits on it and drinks wine. Some people play live music or bring cheese plates or roll joints. It's incredibly beautiful and the vibe is just so vivacious and chill: we made instant friends with the people sitting next to us. It's the perfect place to get drunk and have those, "ahh I'm actually in Paris right now!" moments.
