National Euphoria...

8 Replies



The atmosphere accross France on Saturday night was something very special, and something so different to what we all lived through last autumn. For a change almost everyone was French, racial differences were forgotton, if France lose tonight will it all revert to how it was before, the old tensions and hatred returning. Over the last few week I have heard numerous people saying that the world cup is all hype etc etc, but this really is a 'feel good' time for everyone living in France, the summer is here, the team are doing well, and just imagine if the team go on and win it....fete national will last all week!!

9pm on TF1 or on a big screen at Stade Charlety as someone else helpfully pointed out.

The metro we were on was crazy - the driver let 3 or so lads into his little cabin and they chanted and sang the whole way home over the intercom.

Tonight is wilder, GREAT atmosphere in the City of Light, and the city of honking cars, and flag waving citizens, and singing and fireworks and FUN!
