Life in Paris, my universe and potentially everything

La présidentielle…

Yesterday’s brunch turned out to be much shorter for me than I had planned, I left early since I didn’t feel too great and slept most of the day, so it is only now that I get around to follow up on the first posting. Maik actually beat me to the chase and posted a comment :)

The other big event in France yesterday (next to the brunch) was the final round of the presidential elections here in France. As I guess most of you have heard not everybody was happy with the majority’s choice and so a group of Sarko’s biggest fans staged a reenactment of the French revolution at the Place de la Bastille, which is just around the corner from where I live. Since the French riot police CRS decided to also play it really became a quite remarkable show.

The one thing I have to hand to the French is that they have become a lot more political again, my colleagues discussed the whole SOS (Ségolène Or Sarko) thing for the last six months straight. It’s going to be interesting to see how well président Sarkozy lives up to his promises – after the occasional verbal rioting he did as minister of the interior I must admit I’m a little sceptical, but I guess we’ll just have to see what’s going to happen…
