Oui, my compatriotes could learn a thing or two from Americans when it comes to parades. Our défilé du 14 juillet on isn’t exactly fun and entertaining. Then again, how much fun and entertainment can you really expect from a military parade? Quite a bit, apparently when l’Outre-Mer is being honoured! How awesome is this haka which opened the défilé on the Champs Elysées today?
Kudos too to les sapeurs pompiers for closing the défilé with hot firefighters in little spandex shorts. Was the band playing music from Pirates of the Caribbean in the background of all the acrobatics?? I think we’re learning 😉
