Bastille Day

This is a photo my friend Stacee took of us on Bastille day here in Aix. We watched the fireworks at the Rotonde, and were about 50 feet from where they set them off. I'm pretty sure there are no safety regulations here, nor did I see any fire trucks standing by in case of explosions. The things in our hands are all the papers from the explosives that fell on our heads during the show. It was really beautiful being directly underneath the display, and a nice break this year not having to listen to Lee Greenwood sing "Proud to be an American". (even though I am!!)
