Paris: so fresh and so clean

Come to Paris, one and all! As of February 1st, you will now be able to use the bathroom for free! In this sweeping gesture of good will, the French have finally added the right to urinate in private to the myriad of other health care benefits provided to all. You will no longer have to pay to use the public restrooms! Turns out that letting tourists, not to mention homeless people, urinate somewhere other than the street is cost effective as well as hygienically preferable. But, I know I'd be getting my hopes up if I thought I could walk about Paris without smelling urine at some point every day. Rest assured, some things will never change. There's still the dogs...
