Message from Paris


In another example of how this story of the Picasso affair traveled around the world, Mme. Melanie Herment, who teaches English to French high school students in Paris, has been using the Picasso affair as classroom material in some of her classes.

She has given her students news stories, some of my blog posts, as well as Steve Martin's letter to read. She recently sent me some photos of the actual Lapin Agile in the Montmartre district of Paris. They were taken by one of her students who while strolling in the area had the idea of taking the pictures and sharing them with us.

Melanie is about to launch a theatrical production of her own titled "Once Upon a P.C. Time". It's based on the James Garner Politically Correct Bedtime Stories. Here's the link to her educational website.
To Melanie and all of her students, Break a leg!

Ah, someone beat us to it! Peter and I just returned from Paris last week and we too marched up to Monmarte and took photos of the Lapin Agile with you in mind. We've been thrust so swiftly back into the rushing current of everyday life that we haven't had a chance to look at all of our photos, much less send any of them to you... They pretty much look like the photos you have there. :)
