bastille day today !!
« on: July 14, 2011, 02:57:36 PM »

hi folks
it's bastille day today !!

lot's of firecrakers, open dancing in the streets, joy and excitement, but also i saw the war machines parading this morning : pretty impressive and disgusting at the same time....one more soldier killed in Afghan today ...but i talked to some soldiers , sometimes with provo questions  and i must say they answered with strong statements about duty and serving something bigger than themselves
i received the message :o



off to some yoyo, spintop and street "chapeau m'sieur dames" action

I have good memories of Bastille......not the day but the area.  When we were over there visiting Jim, I rented a bike and rode to the Pere Lachaise cemetery.  Along there and back I went through the area where the Bastille used to stand.  I took a few moments to reflected on some of the events that occurred there.  What a historic place, indeed.  I also vividly remember eating at a Subway near there and asking for American cheese.  They looked at me kind of funny and gave me the one kind of cheese they had.  I also made a big mistake when I asked for free refills on my drink.  They don't do that kind of thing in the Subway stores of Paris.
