Here are some Ancient Egyptian dice that I came
across at the Louvre. Do you think they played 'cee-lo'
This was the first time I actually walked up to
the Tower. It was right around sunset, which is around
10:30pm here. Once an hour the tower sparkles with
hundreds of strobes and everybody cheers.
This is a random painting at the Louvre. Check
the dude with the knife in his head on the right.
There was more than one. Apparently a knife in the
head was a popular subject. The Louvre is a mile long
and has about three miles of wall space. Still
haven't seen everything there and I have been twice.
Jim Morrison's grave has been redone. It looks
like he died yesterday if you didn't know better.
Oscar Wilde's tomb is really cool, too. There is
lipstick all over it from chicks kissing it.
This is a gold with gator skin trim Nikon. This was at a
small museum that was dedicated to the history of
photography. They had all types of cameras. It is in
Berieves, which is a small town outside of Paris that
has a photo flea market once a year. That was the day
I was there and scored a new point and shoot Yashica
T5 with a waist-level viewfinder. It's pretty tight.

Today is the Fete de la Musica. There is music going
on in every corner of the city. It is to celebrate
the summer solstice. The metros are running all
night - it should be pretty fun. I am going to see Mad
Professor (dub reggae) and then the Dresden Dolls. I
think they are considered emo or something...I've never
really listened to them though. Tell the whole SPoT
crew that I said 'hi.'
Keepin' it real in Europe,
