Quatorze Juillet


Today is Bastille Day in France!  We’re going to be down on the Seine to catch the fireworks later but in the mean time here’s a little video of the parade that we tried to see but failed. Click here to read article and watch video.

Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!  Viva la France! And may we actually be able to see the fireworks without having to join the 1,000,000 people at the Tour Eiffel… I’ve been stuck in enough crowds this week to last quite a while.

    What is it with French art? Whether it be sculpture or paint, glorious battle scenes are depicted with many souls wearing little or no clothing? The most common depictions are men with no trousers so the above painting was a little bit of a surprise. Seems as though Lady Liberty never has time to cloth herself properly whether she is presiding over justice or leading the battle cry so that to me is OK.:-) But alas after scanning the above, sure enough, who do you find, but the trouser less male.
    Unfortunately for him he is flat on his back, stone dead, and not sacrificing himself for the cause, but a second thought occurred, perhaps out of concern for modesty or his own dignity, he bailed, feigning dead and collapsed without full frontal exposure.
    Good job laddie.
