(Chapter Five) It was a fine morning. The horse-chestnut trees in the Luxembourg gardens were in bloom (43). The pleasant heat settled on me as I walked around the Marie de' Medici fountain. Just its name brought me back to Italy, to the memories of old friends. I smoked a cigarette and caught up on the latest bull fighting news on a bench close by. Paris is a magical place, and whoever disagrees is a damn halfwit.
