Summer in Paris

Summer's come to Paris and the Parisians are starting to leave. Schools are breaking up, and families are getting ready to leave, usually for the country. Paris doesn't stop dead like it used to when I was here in the thirties, but it changes a lot. And it's started getting hot - Lyrans come from a cool planet anyway, and there's lots of muttering about climate change. OK, we have to destroy the ecology of this world to get back to Lyra, we all know that, but it's a bit hard on those of us who have to walk sweating to work past the pavement cafés full of tourists in shorts and T-shirts.
