Bastille Day, Childhood Friends and a Feedbag

The highlight of the week was the annual Bastille Day military parade. Every year it seems that unpredictable Paris weather cooperates on that day and this year was no exception.

Bastille Day is among the biggest public holidays here and commemorates the 1789 storming of the Bastille prison, the event that symbolizes the start of modern day France. Each year the military hardware is on full display and is quite impressive and as always, the president is on hand to lead the ceremony.

This week I entertained 2 different childhood friends on their visit to Paris. I hadn’t seen either of them in over 10 years. It’s always invigorating to re-see the city through the eyes of a visitor.

As your actuary, I’m compelled to recommend that you hear the latest Coldplay album (if you haven’t already). They have real talent. And watch THIS ENTERTAINING VIDEO.

This made me laugh out loud:
