Pont des Arts

In a world of uncertainty, I am only certain of life, and the lock is to make certain one more thing: that I share this life with my other half. It seems that countless others feel the same way, as there is an estimated minimum of 700,000 locks on that bridge, with keys thrown in the Seine, and not to be recovered. The fairly new tradition of hanging locks on the Pont des Arts bridge actually gained popularity with tourists in Paris, late 2008. Since then, it has become a site to be visited by couples and friends from all over the world, hoping to cast wishes that may come true. Whether endless Parisian love is a true story, or just a fairy tale, I will not know. Yet, I look forward to finding out. As I place our engraved lock on the Pont des Arts, and throw our key in the Seine, my wish joins the countless others and takes part in the story of a romance, an affair of the beautiful city of Paris.
