Août

I am amazed at how much Paris empties out come August.  It's like Atlanta in the Walking Dead, and I am just waiting for the zombie horde to descend.

If anyone wanted to takeover Paris, August would be it.  Just walk-in and occupy the city, and no one would notice until they got back from holiday.  I could proclaim myself the Mayor of Paris the King of France, until the end of August, and no one would notice.  If DPQ proclaims himself King of France, and no one is around to hear it, does his proclamation make a sound?

Or perhaps just name myself concierge of Paris.  I learned a new definition of a word.  "Concierge, or keeper of the palace, entrusted by the king with judicial rights within the royal residence."
