Weekly Photo Challenge: Symbol

Next Tuesday, July 14th, is France’s Fête Nationale – National Day, or Bastille Day – so it seems appropriate for this week’s ‘Symbol’ challenge to show an image that symbolises our adopted country.

Accordingly, here is a detail of the Mairie (town hall) of the commune in which we live. It’s worth pointing out that administrative power in France is heavily devolved down to the local level, and pretty much anything you want to get done  – from getting married to having a new garage built – needs to be approved by, and go through, your local Mairie.
