195/365 Parisian day

195/365 Parisian day
Aromas is a street cafe/restaurant on Hastings Street in Noosa. It has a Parisian style already, but yesterday the atmosphere was even more Parisian with a theme for Bastille Day...

July 14: Allons enfants de la patrie (Let's go children of the fatherland)… it is time to celebrate!

- “Is this a revolt?” asked Louis XVI to the Duque of Rochefoucauld, to which he replied:

- “No Sire, this is a revolution.”

One of King Louis XVI’s most trusted counsellors pronounced those ominous words on July 12, 1789. Two days later, the royal fortress of Bastille — a symbol of despotism — was attacked.

The tide of patriotic fervour led to the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen. “Men are born free and remain free and equal in rights.” Nations around the world modelled their bill of rights after this now universal sentence. No wonder France’s national holiday, le quatorze juillet, is world famous.

This is a really nice scene Gillian. Yes, it's a great holiday. My son is there (in Paris) and watched the fireworks last night. A day to celebrate for sure!
