There was a Bastille Day festival in our neighborhood today. They blocked off the street, poured some sand and held a pétanque tournament. Roughly 12,000 people (literally) converged on our little neighborhood to celebrate France's independence.
It was a good time with decent booze, but a little hot, sweaty and full of rude people. All in all, a pretty decent representation of the south of France.
*To all "The Frogs" fans: you're welcome.
