Bordeaux’s gay pride parade passes by my apartment every year, and this year, it was met with pouring rain. That didn’t seem to dampen the people’s spirits though. I wanted to down to take a look, but the rain certainly stopped me. This is the view from my little window. These aren’t the actual participants, as the parade was blocked by the roof tiles, but they certainly seemed to enjoy being spectators, even in the rain.

As I was walking to the tram station today, I heard some loud VROOMs and turned around to see a parade of people dressed up as Santa Claus…on motorcycles! There must have been at least 50 in a row, turning the corner one after another at Palais de Justice. This sure beats the traditional Santa Claus parades!
