Bastille Day

I have celebrated my first Bastille Day in Paris. I had it in my head as a version of  July 4th in US, but the energy surrounding the French National Day is also very… French. This La Fête Nationale is a celebration of  all French coming and uprising together. Ok, so I am not here to give you a history lesson, that is what Google search is for. I am here to tell you what an amazing time I had going to watch the fireworks, drinking wine and then having a thought provoking metro ride back home. Very different from my beer drinking, soaking in the pool July 4th celebrations. Very different, indeed..
