One of my favorite French politicians, also winner of “greatest name for a politician ever” award.
The Unknown Soldier.
Many tributes to the students who gave their life for France during WWI, and WWII.
It was a beautiful, quiet, not even cold day. I saw le président de la République drive by his in car. He had the window half-way rolled down, he waved. We made a brief, half-second eye contact. I put on my headphones, cranked up Edith Piaf, and walked back home.
