And Hollande Wins!

Socialist challenger Francois Hollande beat Presidential incumbent Nicolas Sarzoky today with 52% of the vote. He’s the first Socialist to win a presidential election since Francois Mitterand back in 1988. Rio and I met an old Frenchie last week who randomly started talking politics while we were sitting at a cafe. He told us “when” Hollande won today he would have a bottle of chilled 46,50 euro Champagne ready to open. I hope he’s enjoying it right now. Vive la France!
