Show Day: Paris - Bercy, Show Two

Managed to stagger out of bed to keep a lunch appointment at 'Cafe de Flore'. This followed by a tour of the flower & plant markets on and around the Ile de la Cite. Its so fantastically unlikely to find what is basically a row of garden centers right in the middle of a capital city - and a perfect antidote to the tourist crush and traffic snarl.

Did an interview for the Irish Times in the afternoon. There is obviously a huge amount of interest in U2's homecoming gigs, but it was especially nice to be interviewed by someone who clearly knew a great deal about theatre and live performance.

Another exception gig, including a daredevil spontaneous rendering of Wild Honey. Fearless, these guys.
