The invasion of the skirts
This evening, Paris has been overtaken with Scottish folk. They are quite amusing without even considering their costumes. They are in town for the World Cup Rugby match between Scotland and France. They are definetely here for the match only, not as tourists. They can be seen downing large bottles of whiskey, and heard singing Scottish battle hymns and occasionally playing the accordion. It's a carnaval-like atmosphere, and a fun addition to the streets of Paris. We just passed about 30 french gendarmes who are gearing up for the hooliganism that will surely come.
