It's so good to see some blue sky after three months of gray, rainy weather. Looking up here, giant murano glass beads on aluminum strands form two bird-cage like cupolas over the much photographed Parisian metro entrance at the Palais Royal station. Designed by Jean-Michel Othoniel and installed in 2000, le Kiosque des Noctambules, gives a baroque feel to the Place Colette.
une bouche de métro: a metro (subway) entrance
