Great Merline 2007-11-29 16:24

Good question you're asking there...not so many people out for night life...fascinating. Another very nice one Hugh, he almost seems to be floating, well done.
I have the feeling you need some courage to bike in NY ? But maybe not more than to drive...

Sorry for abruptly changing subject, but as I see motion picture here above, regarding your series in the Chiapas, have you seen "The violin", by Francisco Vargas ?

Night' (for when it's there for you, bien sûr):-)

Default To Merline: biking in New York

Hi, Michèle. Cycling in NYC is one of the great stupidities in life, and also one of the great joys. You must be a little crazy to do it. And I do it every day, so I must be more than a little crazy. But you have to be a bit crazy to do a lot of things in this city.

I have not seen "The Violin." Is it about Chiapas? If so, I would be interested. I will look around for it. I lived there for awhile and it is a place close to my heart.

Merci et bon soir, -Hugh

It is about all oppression in that part of the world…happens in Mexico, it’s not specifically mentioned that it is the Chiapas but…

It's worth looking and if only for the b/w:-), (teasing) Superb. The violinist still lives and is a true one, on the version we rented there was an extremely interesting documentary as well.

Would be pleased if you let me know what you think of it…

Cheers
Michèle
