French of a few centuries ago (notice the Ys and the S in the verb écouter):
"La parole est moytié à celui qui parle, moitié à celuy qui l'escoute."
~ Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592)
[The word is half his that speaks, and half his that hears it.]
BON WEEKEND à tous!
Last day of the Carnaval in Nice! Tonight we burn the king of the Carnaval. At 2:30pm there should be the floats covered with thousands of flowers and given away to the spectators at end of the parade.
Tomorrow it's the last day of the Lemon festival in Menton. I would love to go there, weather allowing! Let's see how it unfolds.
Meanwhile join me for a walk in the tiny streets.
