#PARIS Day 1

Here are a couple of places I’ve been in Paris, “The City of Lights”.  This amazing city is filled with so much flavor but most importantly, so much history!!!! Buildings here are 100 of years, no CENTURIES older than our COUNTRY!!! Just standing in these buildings have a way of transporting you to the past. Those who know me, know that I studied Architecture for a while, so don’t be surprised by the selection of snaps I’ve taken of the sexy detailed buildings.

I am truly being a tourist, exploring all the touristy places and seeing EVERYTHING a foreigner would see. There is absolutely no shame in my game in busting out my camera in front of the Effiel Tower or being la queue (standing on line) in Versallies to get into King Louis XIV, XV, and XVI Palace. I say, grab it by the cajones and go for it. You only live once and if done right who cares!!! I hope you enjoy looking at Paris through my kaleidoscopic view.

¡Viva La Habana!

I am fiending to get back to Cuba and this animation isn’t diminishing my appetite! Chico & Rita is a mature animated feature that begins in Old Havana (1948) and takes us all over the globe, from Paris to New York to Hollywood.  It’s a sultry story centered around a young piano player (Chico), a beautiful young cabaret singer (Rita), and their passionate desires; not just for each other but for success.  

Just from the trailer you can tell this is a work of art, a visual and aural succulent treat. Opening in UK theatres November 19th this year. Why is that the UK always gets the coolest stuff first?! I can’t wait for this animation to make it across the pond. Look for a review soon.
