steamy daze in St Jean de Luz

It's getting hot and sticky in St Jean de Luz, just in time for the tourist season. The beach is crammed, ice cream vendors are plying a great trade and the erstwhile sleepy streets are busy well past midnight as revellers enjoy the balmy air.

On another note. I heard a report stating that the largest private sector employer in France is McDonalds. France is also reportedly the second largest market for the fast food chain. This does not bode well for the culinary traditions and sacosanct cafe culture of the French. One hopes that the French take strike action accordingly.
