LES FÉLINS … #3 A NIGHT ON THE TILES


I caught this feline fellow about to set off for a "night on the tiles" somewhere in the Dordogne.
When I tried to find the French equivalent of this English phrase, I was surprised to find the following: faire la java!
Apparently the etymology refers to a dance known as the "java" and by extension the phrase has come to describe participation in an all-night dance and music affair fueled by copious quantities of alcohol!  Even the cat seems surprised!
