Telegrams from the Nose

Last Friday night we went with Susan and Bill to a free concert at the Louvre. The concert was multi media using live performers as well as video.  It was based on the novel, "The Nose".  The speaking was in french so we didn't get much of that but the verbiage projected on the screen was in English.  It was set in Russia based around the central character Fyodor Burkhain, a close ally of Stalin, who was tried and executed by firing squad on his orders in 1938.   The musicians had some really unusual instruments.

When we exited the Louvre there was a full moon.  

Patsy and I jumped on the metro up to Trocadero to watch the Eiffel Tower do it's hourly twinkle.
