Sarkozy out!

Posted by Jenelle in Europe 2012, Travel / 1 Comment

Today is the final presidential election for France. At the moment we are watching amazing scenes on TV. Bill can decipher about every tenth word and the election commentators are really arguing among each other… not just playing it up for the cameras!

At about 5.30 when we were starting to head back for an early night, there were police everywhere. Not just some cars, but whole conveys of trucks, vans and cars that were all full of officers. We are currently watching an OJ Simpson style chase of the cars carrying the candidates. It is mental out there! Here are the scenes right now from Place de la Bastille. Crazy!
