Paris: The Cavalry On The Quais

I was walking back to my apartment from Fromagerie Laurent Dubois over on Boulevard St Germain at the Metro Maubert-Mutualite a few years ago when, behind me, I heard that un-mistakeable sound: the clop of horse hooves on the cobble stones (actually there aren't any cobble stones where I was, but that allusion focusses the senses on the sound when writing about it).

I have seen these mounted anachronisms other times and every time it causes a surge of joy.

I even have videos of some of those encounters.

If I ever find them I might post one.
