I'm off to Cork, Ireland today - my first visit (until Friday due to airline schedule challenges) for a workshop on Thursday.

Anyone who knows Cork a bit and would kindly give me some "tips" then please post your comments here or e-mail me directly. Go raibh mile maith agaibh!

UPDATE: My hotel is just up from the cathedral you see in this photo (Saint Finn Barr's) - just east of the University. Very nice area with a view over the river from my room.

PLANNED: Grand Carnaval do Brasil

Tonight at the CABARET SAUVAGE (Parc de la Villette, next to the Géode - Métro "Porte de la Villette") the biggest and best (and I'm not just saying that because it's put on by our friend Regina) Carnaval in Paris (in case you can't get to Rio just now).

There will be some MAJOR batucada action!

See you there? INFO:

La pause de vendredi...

Sylvie had me, Odile and Benj over to her place in the 5th for a nice dinner. Good news - there has been some progress on the reconstruction work as she now has bay windows (instead of boarded up) and some additional work has been done on her small, private garden just in front.

We walked along the quais facing Notre-Dame after dinner and came upon a charming little bar called "Pop Corner" which seems taken directly out of the 15th century (venue-wise, otherwise hip and modern). Later we walked over towards the Luxembourg Gardens, where we left her, to retun home on foot (nice timing as the Eiffel Tower was on it's 1am "blink" - visable through the trees behind the high fence).

Sandwiched between heavy-duty work sessions...

Lunch with our dear friends from Uzès at Le Camilou (where Jean-Yves & Benjamin had their HQ years ago).

Sylvia has come up to Paris to handle some oud-related issues ... sadly she leaves tonight and we probably won't hear her playing.

A mid-day break from work ...

Lots of work lately with travel and meetings.

For a break (from or to reality) we're off to see Princesas, the award winning film (3 Goyas!), with the Puerto Rican actress Micaela Narvaez. Come and meet us there if you're interested - Cinema le Brady l'Albatros at 12:30pm today.

Here's a link to one of the soundtrack songs by Manu Chau.

An excellent film - with some well-placed humor - about solidarity, real love, family.
