Vannes is holding its annual jazz festival this week, and I’m reaping the benefits of having one of the stages just outside my window. Here’s a sound clip and a picture for you. Hope this Friday leads to a great weekend, wherever you’re reading from!
It’s Bastille Day (14 July) here in France, and the town is abuzz with national spirit.
This morning, I was awakened by the sound of a band playing La Marseillaise, the French national anthem. And yesterday, a parade went by on the street outside my window, featuring costumes traditional of French royalty and Breton customs; there was even a bagpipe band.
