The newspapers report that over 300,000 visitors attended the ten day event. And I beleive it too. Can you imagine how long the lines were for the bathrooms??
Wednesday was kids day. About 3,000 little ones came to the huge beach and completely filled it with kites, string, sand holes, lost shoes, and questions that none of us understood. How do you explain to a seven year old French kid that kites fly *down*wind??
