Sam: It’s 2014 and, comme tous les ans, “like every year”, Anne-Sophie goes to la fête de l’Huma. She says: il y a vraiment tout — “there’s really everything”: Concerts, exhibitions, political debates, conferences, a book fair and even a six-mile Sunday run!
Anne-Sophie admits that by Sunday evening she’s generally H.S. — an acronym for hors service, meaning “out of service”. In other words, she’s wiped out from lots of dancing, drinking, and lack of sleep.
What she likes above all là-bas (“there at the festival”) is discovering French cuisine: Beef stew from Burgundy, oysters from Brittany, cod fritters from the Antilles, and tartiflette, which is a gratin from the Alps… all the French specialities are there!
