This is the first time I've experienced rain in Marseille. Before this year, I only visited in the summer when everyday is sunny and gorgeous. I need boots. Oh well, I forgot to bring a pair with me from the United States so I'll just have to deal. Today was also my first experience on the metro and might I say it was a great experience. It's much cleaner than the subways of LA, NYC or even Paris. I praise public transportation because quite frankly I haven't got the gall to drive here. Maybe one day I'll feel comfortable enough to drive here but not today.
