Photo-bytes from la France

Every year, on the first day of summer (June 21), France celebrates la fete de la musique, a music festival which features live music and general good cheer. It is one of my all-time favorite times to be in France. Here's a fire-breathing performer at la fete de la musique in Clermont-Ferrand:

Cotton candy in French is "barbe a papa," which means "papa's beard." Here I am with a papa's beard that proves that size really does matter:

And finally, here is a great statue in the middle of a reflection pool in the Jardins de Luxembourg. Kind of makes you wonder if the Lochness monster ever had a girlfriend...
