Let the Music Play

National Fetes du Musique day and night here in France.
Every town and many villages have a day and night for music, some like Antibes take 3 days to party.
Did you know France has a government department devoted to “quality of life”.
The music fest is one of their ideas in action.
Can you imaging the British government, Tory or Labour ever having a department like that?

Orange.fr, is it only me who feels every time I give business to Orange I get ripped off?
Granted, buying a new phone (mobile, cell, portable) in France is quite a challenge, more so if your French is limited; however I’d taken some precautions and made notes before the event.
