Bastille Day

David Moncoutie owned the bitter sweet victory today at the Tour de France while honoring his countries holiday.

Today is Bastille Day in France. In case you don't know what Bastille Exactly means, it is a National holiday in France. It is very much like Independence Day in the United States because it is a celebration of the beginning of a new form of government.

I was lucky enough to Visit Paris in July 2003 for Bastille Day. The Effiel tower twinkles as the sun goes down and the fireworks prepared to go off. What a beautiful site it was!

August 1st will be the national holiday in Switzerland. I'm sad to say I will only miss it by 8 days. So until next time...
