May 1st is Labor Day in France. Unions are big here and lots of groups were out marching and demonstrating and selling Lilies of the Valley. And the same was true in Pere Lachaise Cemetery. We went to Pere Lachaise because we knew it was a holiday and we thought it probably wouldn’t be closed like so many places are on holidays. But some areas were very crowded and some of the little cemetery intersections were blocked with police cars. But we still managed to find Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf, Chopin, and a cat. A live cat.
