Paris in July - Bastille Day

It's Bastille Day! Ok, it's not really Bastille Day but it was yesterday and I was just to tired to blog about it. As I'm sure a few of you know, the storming of the Bastille on July 14 1789 that sparked the start of that  big ol' Revolution that everyone goes on about. As I couldn't be in France to celebrate, like I would have liked, instead I watched an older episode of QI where the lovely Stephen Fry gives us all a lesson on the prisoners in the Bastille when it was taken.
Here is the clip of that episode
