... in 2001 to go to Paris I made my first light "castelet". I took him with me by train, in a 6-berth bunk and slept together :-)
The first day I went to perform in a park but a cop came to chase me away. A child helped me to explain myself with the policeman, but I had to leave anyway.
With my partner, we start doing shows on the street. Me with Pulcinella and her with the Accordion. We went to the "Center Pompidou", to the "Pont Neuf" (I loved Juliette Binoche very much and that bridge was very impressive for me for a movie I have watched). Once while we were performing at "Canal Saint-Martin" they hired us to do a show in a nursery school. With that money, we travelled to Normandy with a very dear friend, also a puppeteer. Then there was the park of the Goutte d 'or in Barbes, but it was the "Pont des Arts" that gave us the most beautiful gifts and where we stopped until the departure. I remember very well the boats passing below us, the gifts we found in the "Hat" and the picnics on the bridge axes at sunset after the shows. Once in the hat, we found a ring and another time a chocolate cake :-)
