>>> in paris where lovers come? padlock love, good for romance, bad for bridge. historic bridges are full of a lot romantic. one of the bridges is now 12 tons heavier because of the weight. it's fun and lovely until the bridge comes tumbling down. workers have to cut some of them off to protect them. you put the padlock on and take the key, then throw it into the river.

>> what's more remarkable is did you hear her french accent . say the name again.
