Banging the Drum

I forgot mention some fun we had in Paris. We stopped back at Cafe La Relax for a drink and a chat with our new friend, the owner. When we arrived we discovered that a bunch of his friends had taken over the bar and were in the midst of singing a few songs with a mandolin and drum. We pulled up a chair and joined them for a few drinks and some music.

The owner filled us in that they were all Algerian expatriates from his home village and they visited once a week or so to catch up. He gave us a good overview of the history of Algeria┬┤s relationship with France and his particular soft spot for the soccer player Zidane. Darren was cheeky enough to pull out his camera and take a short video which hopefully will appear below.
