Week 3 for Paris in July 2020

 This is mid way through our Paris in July blogging event, and also my favourite week of the event - because its the week of Bastille Day or La Qartorze Julliet. Every year I learn something new about this significant date in the life and history of the French. I believe la qartorze Julliet is such a complicated day that those of us who are not French may never know what it truly means. This year, I look forward to more insights...  and if nothing else, I'll be keen to find some patisserie pour mon pleasure! How will you be marking the occasion? please share if you're reading, watching, cooking, remembering, drinking, listening or what ever....



I've been sharing some of my favourite french music each week, and this is where my true love lies.


But the real purpose of this post is to launch Week 3 Sign in post - and I'm so looking learning more, understanding you more, and loving Paris more.

That's a beautiful selection of music.

My favorite experience with French classical music is the selections that accompany the fountains at Versailles. I'm happy to see that the musical fountains are operating this year -- sad that Americans deservedly can't go to France, though! You made me so happy to think about it that I added another blog post to embed the video from the Chateau website.

be well... mae at maefood.blogspot.com

That is amazing. Must be wonderful to listen to it in the gardens.

I finished a book this week about French history, and I was surprised to learn that there have been several revolutions. I always thought in the past that the French are like the US, with one revolution. I'm not sure when Bastille Day came about.

Thank you for sharing the music. I'm like Mae; my sister made sure we visited the gardens at Versailles when the music was playing, on Sundays back then.
