Bastille Day: almost as exciting as a snow day [since I had no class], but without the element of surprise or the anticipation from sitting in front of the television waiting to see my school’s name…a perfect day for a post-thunderstorm picnic! This was my first time outdoors all day, since I barricaded myself in the apartment memorizing recipes for my written exam this friday. Comment se dit en francais, ‘hallelujah’?:
Our picnic was followed by fireworks by the Tour Eiffel:
I must admit, not as awesome as fireworks on the salt & pepper bridge in Boston for the 4th of July or the ones in Shanghai for Chinese New Year’s, but I love fireworks nonetheless! You can be sure I was oo-ing and ahh-ing at all the pretty colors and sparkles.
