A Grand Day Out

Yes, it really was! A spectacle to rival no other (except, possibly, the Le Dorat Gay Pride march in June). No, no, I jest... but it really was amazing.

The fountain in the Place Charles de Gaulle was all decorated with red flowers...

...and I've never seen so many people anywhere in this part of France EVER in the 2 years I've been here...

Such a shame the next one isn't until 2016. The place was so vibrant and people seemed so happy to be watching this historic spectacle (350 years of it!).

More pictures here.

The souvenirs were AWESOME!!!!! I got one of everything:

  • a postcard
  • a fridge magnet
  • a rosette with a little medallion showing the saints - one on each side
