July 14th, 2011. France’s Independance day, aka Bastille Day. Probs one of the best days ever.
First of all, we had that thursday and the next day off…4 day weekend! And Sarah was coming to visit that weekend.
I slept through the parade (it was at 10 AM and I had busy weekend ahead, I needed sleep) but I met my friends at the Champs de Mars around lunch time and we literally stayed there allllll day long. There was a concert going on sponsered by the group SOS Racisme (Benebar was there!) but the sound system was not that great.
We spent the day hanging out, meeting people (marines), speaking some French. Until the fireworks at night.
Wow this post is short. But I cannot fully describe what happened. But it was truly one of the most fun days ever.
Here are some pics!
