France is a winner

When we grabbed a dinner table at this casual Paris cafe we had no idea we would soon be hooting and hollering with the local football fans. Their energy was hard to resist.

Little did we know when we planned our France trip that the Euro Cup would be in full swing during our stay. Even more exciting was Iceland's fairytale rise to the quarter finals where they met their match against France…a match that played out tonight.

We couldn't figure out what this cafe name meant, but we made the right choice for a fun-filled evening!

As game time approached and the big screen came down, we found ourselves with front row seats to the upcoming France v Iceland match. As more and more fans crowded the bar we became trapped among some of France's most rabid supporters.

The crowd went wild when France score a second goal.

As you can see, the rowdy crowd was thick behind us. What else could we do but order another glass of wine and cheer for the home team?

      Thanks Ken, it was fun. We arrived in Strasbourg today and are ready for a little slower, quieter pace…more like home.
