Who says the French don't like America?
I spied this biker chick in Clermont-Ferrand and was immediately intrigued by her rather noticeable stars-and-stripes jacket. It was only afterwards that I saw that the bike was decorated with a small American flag as well.
See, there is love for the States here in France...
A quick hello to my great friend Violaine, with whom I went to school here. She was sitting in a café with me when these photos were taken. She smiled and said: " I sense that this will end up on your blog!"
You were correct, Violaine! Thanks for the wonderful après-midi in Clermont.
