VERY lucky with the weather for May Day at the Bastille.

Slideshow (click box bottom right for full screen and move cursor up to lose thumbnails at bottom) :

After that went with a friend to Bofinger, for a more bourgeois experience, but a very reasonable and good menu for 32.

Later in walked De Villepin with three attractive young women, probably his daughter, who is a model, and her friends.

It's not my photo of Villepin and daughter -  I wasn't meant to be a paparrazo :-)

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.

Villepin slumming it at the Bastille just to show he wasn't over at Sarko's parade. :-)

Gorgeous slide show. Especially love the sun shots.
