While everyone is taking their vacation,
I stay in the capital in strong sunshine, imagining that I am looking for shells buried in the Parisian sea, 45 million years ago ...
Traces of organisms that no longer exist are remaining on the walls of old buildings which preserved by the limestone extracted from the underground.
This city can be called a snail but it evokes me rather the huge memory of a huge hard disk drive.
If so, what beautiful traces will we leave in the future?
