President Bush was at a celebtration in Paris in the summer of 1989. I remembering watching the celebration and fire works from my room in Strasburg, France. My visit to Strasburg was a highlight of a weekend from my home in Lille.
Strasburg has a history to be shared with the world. It will be a wonderful place to start the 2006 "Le Tour De France."
Viva Le France!
