Baa baa back to Paris

Regarding the April 7 article “Paris hires sheep to mow city lawns”: A trip to Paris? Many travelers are so excited about the prospect of visiting Paris that they have to count sheep just to get to sleep the night before leaving.

I’m not trying to make a lot to do about mutton, but Paris is considered a dream city by many. An unsuspecting tourist going by the Eiffel Tower is likely to make a ewe turn and go back.

Don’t let anyone pull the wool over your eyes. It’s expensive to go to Paris, but here is an opportunity to go on the sheep.
