The Saint's Day Parade

Today Liliane and I went to her parent’s village to see a parade.  The village was celebrating their saint’s day. . . . not sure which one, Liliane didn’t know.  The village streets were lined with parade watchers.  It started at the church by blessing a donkey, I think and then proceeded up and down the streets.  We actually got to see the parade twice.  The children were so cute dressed up in the old provincial costumes.  It was definitely an “event” with candy and lavender throwing.  The kids, all of us loved it!

Liliane's mother, son Remi, and granddaughter, Lola

So, this is it.  It has been a wonderful trip.  I leave in the morning at 7:00 and will be in Little Rock Monday afternoon.  Looking forward to seeing all of my friends and family and.........air conditioning!
