Most of all, we just enjoyed seeing our beautiful town lit with beautiful lights and filled with art-loving people.

|du pavot à la rose -- poppy rose installation|
|each boat was filled with rose petals|
|in the "bubble island" section they had large, colorful balloons everwhere|
|looking up in abbaye saint-vincent|
Michael managed to get a video clip of a modern music concert that we stumbled into taking place in the previously pictured abbaye saint-vincent. the video features me staring at the incredible vaulted ceiling like a goof along with our friends Anna and Seth and a bit of music just to give you an idea of what an experience it is to hear a modern music concert in a 1000 year old church. sorry about the thumping, by the way, i have no idea what it is.

|oh, and Michael finished my haircut earlier that day. i'm fairly certain tracy (my hairdresser back home) will say: "what the hell did you do??" but he cut it exactly how i instructed even if he was uneasy, and i love it; that's all that counts, right?|
