Photo  Fêtes de Bayonne
As I mentioned yesterday, I invite all my DP friends to join me next year for the Fêtes de Bayonne. Maybe we could arrange DP Family Get Together during Fêtes de Bayonne ? I am ready to arrange it. What do you think Eric and all DP members ? This 2 photos may give you some ideas of the fêtes.
Fete de Bayonne

Photo Fête de Bayonne Bayonne Cathédrale

This is a street sign of Bayonne, a city in Pays Basque / Basque Country, south west of France, less then half an hour drive from Spain border.

I've choosen this photo as my theme day photo - instead of street sign of Toulouse, my city - for some reasons :

* The street sign at Bayonne is unique since its written in 3 languages (see the top of the sign) : first language is French (Bayonne Cathédrale); 2nd is Basque (Baiona Katedrala) and the 3rd (Bayoune Catedrala) I don't know what language it is, maybe Occitane.

* The second sign was the sign of Fêtes de Bayonne (Bayonne Festival / summer party) which attracted thousands and thousands of people from around the world. Massive of people in white and red enjoy the party from morning until the next morning for five days ! This year was my 5th opportunity attending this party. I've several time arranged get together with my virtual friends (friends I knew from internet) at this periode of fêtes and we always had good time. That's why I put this photo as and invitation to all my DP friends and especially my french friends (Marie - Montpellier, Jilly - Menton, Eric - Paris, PaB - Baziege, Matthieu -cherbourg, etc, etc) DP friends from Europe or whoever want, come and join me next year !!! (I could arrange accomodation and other things needed).

PS : Since many of you think that the woman on this photo holding the fêtes de Bayonne sign. I need to put another photo to make clarification. This woman not holding the sign. She is not the bottled water seller either nor just posing for me. She was the woman who help to organize the traffic during the fêtes. The bottles are ready for people who maybe got sick because of hot weather while got trapped in the traffic. When took this photo I was inside my car on the way to Anglet beach and my car was stuck for some minutes because of the street "diversion" (using Hyde DP word) during the fêtes.
