Sundance Raps with Lil Jon and Snoop Dogg

user
What do Snoop Dogg, Lil Jon and The Sundance Film Festival have in common?  The World Famous HarryO’s!    It’s Thursday, the opening day of the Sundance Film Festival.  Main Street is a breeze to drive down and the public parking lots are free - as opposed to the harsh $20 they’ll charge starting Friday.  Now I know why a local store clerk at the nearby outlet mall told my friend everyone in Park City hates us festival folk.  At $20 for parking, I’d be bitter too.  ...

It's the BFI London Film Festival and I'm at the BFI Southbank to meet Clive Owen.

Mariam Arthur en route to Cannes day 5

I awoke to the smell of fresh croissants baking in the oven. Xin and Uli were so kind to offer such a yummy breakfast! Soon, we were off for the day, taking the Metro to Montmartre, where artists like Pierre-Auguste Renoir used to live and create. Artists of today still flood the area.

I have found that a steady pace works best for me, and with ti...
