La Fête Nationale

Fireworks at the Eiffel Tower were pretty spectacular. Unfortunately, my photos were not -- slow shutter speed without a tripod does not work that well. But click to see a few anyway.

Yes, that's a disco ball hanging from the center of the Tower; the musical theme this year was disco. This seemed to catch the French (as well as all the other tourists) by surprise -- nobody around us was dancing except the Americans we were with. Other than during "YMCA," which caused a spark.

It was without a doubt the best fireworks display I've seen. Maybe not better than San Diego's though.
