Bastille Day Fireworks at the Eifel Tower.

Every year, Adrian plans a Bastille Day picnic in the afternoon on the lawn of Champ de Mars facing the Eiffel Tower. Today's rain cancelled the afternoon picnic, and it stopped just long enough for the grass to dry, allowing everyone to enjoy the amazing fireworks in the evening.

Walking to the Champ de Mars.

On the way to the Fireworks.

(Muslim women and what they wear in the streets of Paris is a whole other blog!)

Waiting for the Show.

Looking back at the crowd.

...and the show begins. (my attempt at video below)

Wish you all were there to see this live.
