An afternoon at Marais


The Picture

So yesterday I was peacefully smoking a cigarette outside a bar in Marais when I notice an older man looking at me walking in the sidewalk. His eyes called my attention and I looked closer only to realize the gentleman was no one else but HUGE Brazilian singer/songwriter Chico Buarque.

I was so astonished that my mouth dropped instantly and I could not move, literally. Unfortunately, I didn’t even have the presence of mind to ask him for a photograph. I know, I know. Too bad. In any case, this is the picture of today, even though I don’t have any pictures to show, I’d like you all (even those of you who don’t know who he is) try and imagine bumping into one of my greatest music idols walking cheerfully and naturally around in Paris.
