This week Parisian authorities have closed the Pont des Arts Bridge in order the eliminate the large collection of “love-locks." For those of you that don’t know the tradition, lovers come to the bridge to place their lock on the bridge, symbolizing everlasting love.
Personally I think we are losing an important and creative tradition. Paris is the city of love, romance, and tourists com from all over to place their lock. The locks themselves have become to heavy for the bridge to handle, so removing them was necessary. I’m just sad that we are losing such a interesting and romantic tradition for couples.
