Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

Doh, just realized I forgot to post about this. Tuesday night, the city of Rennes held the first-ever multi-media Opera experience in France. They showed "Don Giovanni" simultaneously on a big screen across from the opera building, inside the city hall in two different halls (one HD and one 3D), on several different local TV channels, on one international channel (Mezzo) and also on the radio.

Here's a view of the screen in front of the city hall. (Again, big surprise here, but I came with an uncharged camera and had to take a pic with the blackberry).
The other highlight of my evening was meeting Emily, a fellow American who used to live in Rennes. We've "known" each other via blogging and FB for several years now, but never actually got a chance to meet before she moved back to the US. But she happened to be in Rennes as well Tuesday night, so we *finally* met up for a drink after all this time.

Here's our drinks with the screen in the background:
And then it was back to Yuri's house to visit a bit with Ms Leah and play with the tiny grey kitty before going to bed. So even though I don't necessarily enjoy coming back to Bretagne all the time for work, at least the upside is that my schedule is flexible enough to squeeze in quick visits with my dear friends.
