Today, Bastille Day, is the one day of the year that you really see all the French happy at the same time. For a sweet moment in time, summer is at her fulsome peak, work is forgotten (again!), children have no school, strolling around with bare legs is de riguer, the troops are marching their colors, the Marsiellaise is playing, the tricolore is flying, speeches are made and lots and lots of vin is uncorked for the occasion!
Let's take a peek at our beloved France on her special day, and let's raise a toast to our singular friends whose cry of *Liberty, Equality and Fraternity* garnered much of the world's admiration.
The Proud Tricolore
