un pot de depart pour Chirac

on Saturday night, my street association hosted "a good-bye drink for Chirac"...the outgoing President didn't show up, but my neighbours dressed for the occasion, including some Marie Antoinette hairdos (royalist coiffure being de-rigueur for Royal supporters!) ...with the help of a song book, we managed to keep track of the endless lyrics of French chansons, while tiny pirates staged coups at the soda table.

last night, the mood in the villa garden was more serious as neighbors gathered to watch the results on a little television set up outside on an iron table. everyone was relieved that Le Pen's support has dropped since the last election and he won't be in the second round.
