3, 2, 1, go! (#2)

Here i am for my second instalment of the Paris retrospective. But to get us started, a little rant about a funny article in this weekend's paper. I'm not sure just how far this story went, but it's worth a glance if you've not heard of it. So, this couple goes off to the Maldives and decide to have a special ceremony to renew their vows or something along those lines. They pay an exhuberant price, go through with it, only to find that they have been mocked and humiliated the whole way through. At first I found the story quite shocking, then frankly funny, then I got a little angry at the people blaming the "reverend". If your marriage really means that much to you, would you want someone to read out vows you did not understand in the slightest? Granted, families can also be quite nerve-wracking at times, but why escape away from them all and fly off to a completely unknown country on such an important day?
 One thing is for sure, the couple will never forget that ceremony! Did this story make you laugh? Cringe?

Right, now back to Paris!
