Vive la France!


On a gagné, on a gagné!! Wednesday night we got together with a few pals at L'abreuvoir, a little bar in the small town of Mougins, (close to Cannes) to watch France play against Portugal.
L'abreuvoir, as its name indicates, used to be a watering place esp. for horses and still retains its cave-like appearance inside.
After a few bottles of rosé and many a "Zizou, Zizou!" and of course, the obligatory "Allez les Bleus" the French team had beat Portugal 1-0 thanks to a penalty shot by Zidane....
We decided to head to Cannes and celebrate the victory. It was so much fun honking at cars, cruising with big French flags out the window. We walked around the croisette dancing and yelling and then did a bit of bar hopping. Finally we got home around 4 am, which really wasn't that late if you think about it. I'm really looking forward to the final on Sunday! Party time! ( I hope).
