A Security Alert on May Day 2015 © 2015 Chant Wagner
The most surprising aspect of this May Day was that there were no muguet sellers in sight in the morning when usually there are plenty. The explanation was not the rain but a security alert...
The area was swarming with CRS guards getting ready to take their positions. So that the impression was that instead of finding bouquets of lily the valley, you got bouquets of military-trained women and men.
As the situation got under control later in the morning - now word on it was mentioned in the news - the muguet sellers appeared finally like each year like clockwork.
