RER, Paris, France, july 13, 1998, about 12h30 :: The morning after France became the new world soccer champion, a singer/guitarist in the RER sings a song that suits the occasion.

Centre Pompidou, Paris, France, february 11, 2000, evening :: I took Alec to see a concert by 3 DJ's - Christian Marclay, DJ Olive and Erik M. - in the Centre Pompidou. The noise and often very loud, extreme sounds produced by the scratching of a variety of vinyl on multiple recordplayers frighten him so much, that we have to
leave well before the improvised performance has gotten half way.

Vincennes, France, july 12, 1998, around midnight :: The French team has won the world soccer championship. Horns, cries, cars, shouts, motorbikes, all over the Avenue de Paris.

Trouville, France, july 24, 1998, early morning :: Outside (rue des Rosiers): seagulls crying.
