On the 14th July we commemorate Bastille Day, where French revolutionaries stormed the Bastille fortress and marked a major turning point in the French Revolution in 1789. This inspirational moment in France's history embodies the spirit of Liberté, égalité, fraternité ("liberty, equality, fraternity"), that define the country to this day.

A salute to our friends in France. Bonne fête du 14 juillet!
