Paris Square by day and by night

 Happy 14 July to all the French citizens! 

 For Bastille Day, here is Jerusalem's own  Paris Square.

The square is also known as  "Kikar Tsarfat" in Hebrew and "Place de France" in French.
 More about it here  in my earlier post.

See other French places  in Jerusalem here:
the French Consulate
the fascinating old  French Hospital St. Louis
Many City Daily Blog bloggers around the world are posting today about the holiday.

See Google's 14 July doodle too.

Bonne fête!

Why a consulate and not an embassy in the capital of Israel? I know the French are in good company about this...

Ahhhhh... Bastille Day! I remember a neighbor in Illinois who always celebrated that day and she was German. She used to tell me how Midwesterners just didn't know how to make bread like the French. I thought that was silly until we went to Paris. That bread was pretty darn awesome.

One more thing, in the top photo the hovering palm tree looks like a scarecrow, in fact I mistook it as one.
