I live very close to about three lycées/high schools. I think the kids had some big contrôlés/exams this week. I heard a lot of screaming after school on Thursday. But on Friday afternoon the kids went crazy. They were running around with cans of shaving cream and sometimes eggs (just like older kids on Halloween in the US). You could not walk down the street in my neighborhood without seeing kids covered in shaving cream. The streets were painted with the stuff (it's really slippery!). I couldn't resist taking a picture of a jeep blanketed with cream. It looked pretty, as though the vehicle was covered in snow. Don't you think?
