Ashes to ashes, dust to dust...
I've often worried how the French Foreign Legion came to be such feared fighters in the desert realms of North Africa. Well, know I know. Paris is an excellent training ground for the searing dust storms! I'm not sure why but unlike say, London, Paris seems to have a bit of an aversion to having too many grass paths or paving slabs. Whenever possible they seem to like to adorn their wider thoroughfares with a lashings of dirt and gravel...ideally littered with the stub ends of a few hundred discarded gitanes. Stroll Eiffel Tower-wards on a warm and breezy day and see how much grit you can accumulate in your eyes before you too start to see whether the riffs are about.*
