The French Community in Tokyo

This was back in May when I was invited to attend a music event being held at Institut Français du Japon in Tokyo.  A bit difficult to see how busy it was but the courtyard of the Institute being used as a music venue to host Orelsan was packed.  It was as though all French expats living in Tokyo gathered here.  And they knew all the words to what the rapper had to say.

The Final Event in Paris with a Visit to Ferber Studios

Juliette Greco, Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Vanessa Paradis and many others have recorded here is what I have read.  The weather had cleared by the time I was going over to the Ferber Studios in the late afternoon and a reception and a tour of the studios followed by a lovely showcase by Sparky in the Clouds were a perfect way to end my stay in Paris.
