Nuit Blanche

Now, from what I've read, nuit blanche is supposed to be about a night of art and culture...well, ours may have gone a bit wrong...



So, the pre-drinking ring of fire (my rules are amazing and I will provide them some other time) took longer than we thought and meant most of us (definitely me) were absolutely trashed by the time we went to go looking for art...which ended up being around 2 a.m.


The video is of Naomi's brilliant rule that everything had to be in song...we attempted to try to do it to the tune of 'Simply the Best' but we always ended up with non-tuneful opera type singing! Anyway, finally, we were heading out, searching for art...


But...it wasn't too long before some of us got a little bored 'art hunting' and decided to stop in at the nearest bar we could find open.


After stopping in that Canadian bar for one...we went wondering round the lovely little area of St Michel riddled with restaurants and bars and found ourselves, once again in my favourite jazz place...no hiding the name this time since it's in the pictures.


It was somewhere around 3 a.m. so the place was pretty empty by this point...and no, we weren't the band, ha!


You'd think we'd get bored pretty quickly being essentially the only people in there but we didn't leave til they kicked us out...somewhere around 5 a.m.


We decided to wander in search of art, since we figured we may as well wait for the first metro, and stumbled upon some funky things.


There was this movie screened on a building and French rap music playing in the street...as we walked along the river this thing floated by as well...


So, we didn't find art but art found us and we definitely had a hell of a night! Maybe next year I'll work a bit harder to see the cultural side of nuit blanche.
