Huge kudos to the people who designed, set up and launched all the fireworks involved in Paris' Bastille Day celebrations. Hands down the best display of colourful explosions I have ever seen, even if things were half-hidden behind a tree from where I was standing to watch it.
The huuuge herd of people to fight through to get on/off the Metro was less fun.
Now I am chilling in my hotel room and stuffing my face with crêpes (lemon crêpes = SO GOOD).
Oh yeah, for those whom I didn't tell before, I'm doing the tourist thing in Paris, France for a few days. Finally taking up that standing invite to visit the Buffet-Crampon woodwind factory, so I made a short summer holiday of it. Didn't realize until a few days after I booked my tickets that I was going to be in the city during Bastille Day. So much stuff to see.
