(Just a quick ‘postcard from Paris’-type post today while I unpack my bags & go through my pictures, but expect a lot more of French-flavoured content coming to Cake + Whisky very soon!)
Bleu. Blanc. Rouge.
Blue for honour, white for purity, red for passion. Blue for the king, white for light, red for blood.
And of course, blue skies, white cheese and red wine!
As it happens, blue and red are also the time-honored colors of Paris, while white is the color of the Royal House of Bourbon (including Louis XIV, XV & XVI, whose reigns have fundamentaly marked the French capital).
No wonder then that blue, white and red are everywhere in Paris… especially on Bastille Day!
France may have lost the Euros, and we may have had the saddest of Bastille Day, but the tricolore colours still shine high and proud. Love will prevail.
Together with blue skies, white cheese & red wine, of course!
