Koi-Nobori in Paris

In Japan, windsocks shaped like Koi (carp) fish are flown in the springtime, around the time of Children's Day in early May.  This year, I was sad because I had to travel to Europe during the season of the Koi, but it turned out all the flags that fly around the perimeter of UNESCO's headquarters in Paris were replaced with Koi-Nobori!  If you look carefully, you might spot the top of the Eiffel Tower amidst the Koi.
