G'day from Australia,

It sure looks like a fun competition. Loved your photo essay.

Great work on this blog. I followed your link from a comment on Kalyan's blog.

I shall add you to my blogroll if you don't mind. If you have time, you might get the chance to check out some of my work on my blog.

Like you, I'm a proud father and sometimes I publish photographs taken by my kids, to encourage them.

I'm glad I found your site. Congratulations.

Great photos! It looks like they were having fun, except for the people who fell out of their boat. I like the shark boat too. Thanks for showing us these photos!

I rolled on the floor, puked, screamed, and passed out. When I woke up the neighbor was gone.

HAHAHA! I've seen this on TV but not sure if it was in France.

Students make boats out of different things and try to sail across the river.
