Bastille Day

by Savannah B.

Bastille Day was the highlight of my week. The 14th of July is the day that France celebrates the storming of the Bastille. In Nice we celebrated by going to the beach and watching fireworks. We were kindly surprised by Arthur and after the fireworks he took us to dinner. The fireworks were amazing, but not only can you see the fireworks but also here people shooting off firecrackers on the beach.

 Though it got pretty loud and there was a lot going on, I was excited to be able to spend Bastille Day in France. It was a magnificent experience, one that I want to do again. The next day during our nighttime activity we went salsa dancing with Cyril and we learned a few choreographed dances, both days were filled with fun and activities.
