for all the time that i have lived in san franisco, i have alway celebrated bastille day, whether it be having a french dinner, dancing to bardot, watching amelie for the millionth time, or partying with the french expats in san francisco. i think my francophilia has payed off now since i actually am able to celebrate while i'm in france. paris is filled with decorations and people for bastille day celebrations and i'm learning alot about the french's pride in egalite, liberte, and fraternite. it is written everywhere from the monuments to the colors they wear. they don't wait to start those fireworks early either, i got a quick preview of the show that's to come alive in paris today!
i am very excited to be here to celebrate and i hope wherever you are, you are celebrating too.
happy bastille day!
