Pieces of home

No, this picture was not taken in the US - it was taken at an event here in Paris entitled "Des Américains à Paris". It's what I saw just after paying my 2.70€ entrance fee.

On my left, I saw this (sorry about the quality of the pictures, they were taken with the blackberry. I had my camera with but realized I'd forgotten to turn it off after uploading the Château pics, so the battery was dead):
And straight ahead? The lovely lady liberty:
There was also a real American school bus (with French plates): And an old school police car:The funniest part of the day though was watching 6 French semi-adolescents perform Grease in English. I just about died laughing listening to them sing classics such as "Summer Lovin" and "Grease Lightning" in their Frenchie accents.Though I was a little bit confused as to what this girl's (extremely short) outfit had to do with the musical....

Looks slightly surreal, but would have been interesting to see!

Hey you got a picture of my cousins! Lol, or were they actually just Italians dressed up as Natives?

Ha shelby, you crack me up! It's funny though, I really expected them to be Natives, but it sounded to me like they were speaking fluent French!

Ohhh, we should have gone in! Seb was grumpy about it. The tarif are really confusing though. You have to buy tickets to see each show right? That's what I understood. French Grease would have been worth it though.

It was 2.70€ to get in (for adults, kids price was cheaper), and then everything was free except for the theater part and the rides. So all the music stuff (concerts, etc) was free but there were a few things that were payant.
