We came home last night feeling defeated and beaten. Bastille Day is not all is cracked up to be. If people say that Europe is too packed in Summer, then you can only imagine putting all of those people in one place. But it wasn't just the people... we have realised that the French dont know how to party and can't plan an event. I'll try not to be too negative. Adam thinks we need to wait days for the hindsight effect to kick in.. but here it is in truth.
Tuesday night (13th), Quentin our apartment owner, told us that it may be noisy all night as the celebrations kick off the night before Bastille Day. We went down to the concert near our house and it ended at around 10pm. Ha, can't party. But we'll forgive them - maybe tomorrow will be huge.
It was hell. We came home and couldnt even speak to each other. We fell into bed in utter dismay.
Bastille Day in Paris may sound fun. But really the celebration is not nearly exciting enough to make up for the head f*ck.
Paris, you would want to make things up to us today. You really need to redeem yourself if you dont want to go down as worst leg of the trip.
Hopefully back later with a more positive update.
(looking at the pics, we probably sound like spoiled whingers coz it looks pretty good!! It was a tough day. We swear.)
