Then we went to a diner Rue Cler near the Eiffel Tower that was taking place in the street, funny to attend as the mayor of the 7th district is Rachida Dati and the new MP of the district is former Prime Minister François Fillon, they tried to avoid contact as they hate each other even though they're from the same right wing political party. In the end they met and had to shake hands, Funny when you know that they insulted each other just two months ago.

That's our second meeting with a Prime Minister after attending The -Fête de la Musique- @ Hotel de Matignon with new PM Jean Marc Eyrault last week.
