I think everyone else seems to have been a bit Manic as well. I was shocked to see the riots in Nantes. So many people converging on Nantes, obviously with the intent for a non peaceful confrontation with the police. I do think people should have the right to demonstrate, but not for the 'rent a mob' to turn up.
There should be no violence at demonstrations. What real benefit is this chaos. It is counter-productive.
I pray the talks for Syria in Geneva have opened new dialogue, it will be a long road of negotiations to reach forgiveness and reconcilliation. Perhaps a shouting match may look ugly, but it's better than not talking. At least once the initial frustration and anger is out in the open, the real issues can be developed in diplomacy. This has been an appalling war. All wars are devastating.
I took some more photos the last couple of days. I live in a beautiful Island, and yes it is lovely even out of season. The winter days can be very Sunny, however we have had Fog this February, which messes up everyone's travel plans. There is plenty do do even if it is foggy though.
