I know it took me awhile but wow it's been busy. So a little retro blogging is in order. I celebrated my first Bastille Day in New York a few weeks ago. You do know Bastille Day right? It is officially La Fete Nationale in France and it commemorates the 1790 storming of the Bastille, a fortress prison and was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation. What does that mean for us now? A Festival of course!! And a Petanque Tournament in the middle of a Tribeca Street. And Can Can dancers and Jazz bands! Free hats and parasols! Oh and a guillotine to make it all the more realistic. Or something like that.
