The 21st of June is the festival of music in France. I've been here four years and missed it every time.
This year, I said, "We're doing this."
We drove to nearby Bergerac, home of Cyrano (ya know, with the long nose). The centre-ville is pedestrian and oh, so charming. We heard an accordian group playing French songs, a pianist playing Pachebel's Canon, an African group that hadn't started yet, some pop band that looked like it was for the younger and drunker crowd. I enjoyed a gelato, Italian ice cream, which is a main reason to live in Europe. We ate a light picnic dinner and then headed home when as the little ones' bedtime was reached, which was just as the music was really starting. But hey! you do what you can. All in all, a lovely, summertime, family activity. Here's pics and a video which will provide more inspiration than any of my words!
Have you visited somewhere inspiring lately? Any family activities? Are you a Cyrano fan? Looking at my nose, all you can think to say is, "it's big"???
