Forget about getting rid of the "lovelocks" on the Pont des Arts (see Where did our love go?). Despite the best efforts of city officials and/or scrap metal thieves, there are many more of the tiny padlocks on the bridge now than there were a year ago. And the number is swelling; walk across the bridge at any time of day and you'll see couples attaching their inscribed locks to the bridge's fencing and then throwing the keys into the Seine as a declaration of their everlasting love. It's not just happening in Paris -- the trend is spreading around big cities all over Europe. It just goes to show the power of love or perhaps the power of a simple idea (or both).
