T99 says she is off to France, on what sounds like a well-earned trip. (She also added that she'll be trying to check in by blackberry, about which I know nothing; but I have tried to enable Blogger's mobile-device mode for easy viewing on that platform. Let me know if it works.)
I have never been to France, but my mother and sister had a wonderful time there a few years ago. If I were to go, I would want to go and see whatever festival this happens to be:
The song is a cheery one in French, though an old and traditional. Here is one that is newly composed, within the last dozen years or so, but in a dialect of French that is genuinely Medieval.
Of course, most likely you will want to see the modern France, and not the one that would interest me. You'll have to let us know what you find there of value.
