Just a quick glimpse of Bastille Day here in Paris. It was definitely worth getting the room with a view for the day. It’s now about 1:15am on the 15th, Paris time.
Late revelers are still hanging around Place de Mexico, setting off unofficial fireworks and the occasional M-80. A few stragglers wander the street singing French songs, and we are happily heading to bed. We enjoyed our last view of the lighted eiffel tower before it turned off for the night, and will torture ourselves with an attempt at waking for a sunrise view on our final day.
Happy Bastille Day, 2014, friends!
