Fête de la musique 2007
As I told you last month France celebrates the beginning of summer with Fête de la musique. Throughout France free music concerts are everywhere. In fact, June 21st the first day of summer, is when Fête de la musique is held. This is the only day in France when everyone and anyone have the right to play music on the street, no permit needed.

Yes, you read that right. Not only can you ski in summer you can practice your French! In February I told you about my learning to ski in Megeve with Mike Beaudet aka ‘Megeve Mike’.
