A Parisian Tradition: the kitschy Bastille Day Fireman’s Balls (heh, you know, like “galas”).
Read more about them at this link:
I went to the one in the 19th last night, on rue Bitche (heh). I didn’t drink or eat — no gluten-free options, but it was
fun to watch people! I am working on having gratitude for my camera, which takes the worst night photos. BUT, I have Picasa photo editing to thank for creating some interesting photos, nonetheless, which sort of fit the drunken fun at these events. 🙂 I used “blur photo” a lot. Ha! 🙂 It was a sober and wonderful time for me, and even better, NO HANGOVER today! Woot!
I posted all of the photos at Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/karinlynn and got some great video, too, which I hope to post to YouTube and/or Flickr later on.
Here are some collages of what we saw.
