200 year anniversary
Today is Le 14 juillet (Bastille day), the day France celebrates its Revolution... Like every year, there is going to be a huge march on the Champs Elysées and like last year it seems it's going to rain [update: not really, it's a beautiful day!]! This year's theme is "overseas" (we have several troops stationed in the West Indies and other French territories). The firemen will also be honored, as they celebrate their 200 year anniversary this year (I wonder who put out fires in Paris before?!), hence this photo, that I took from my window a few days ago, when my boulangerie caught on fire!
