An afternoon at the Zoo

I was drawing at the Zoo 2 days ago.
There was a cage with some leopards in it.
I began to draw one of them while...

Few minutes later, while I was drawing some kind of strange animals, a man came around - an ostrich feather on his cap (???), saw my leopard sketch and said with a powerful voice full of confidence :

Either my drawing was pretty bad, or the leopard was a tiger in disguise...

For those who are still confused here is a little help!

FĂȘte de la Musique

It was the World Music Day yesterday.
The atmosphere in Paris this night was awesome. The city was overcrowded, very lively, almost unrecognizable.
On my way back home in the subway, there was a man (drunk for sure) on the other side of the platform.
He was singing with his acoustic guitar a song about Rock 'n' Roll. It was just magical. The atmosphere was quite melancholic this time, fitting my mood perfectly. He was really singing with his soul, that's the way I felt. At the end of the song, he started to say wonderful things about music, the way it can only bring love and cannot harm. Then he stood up and said we could throw him some coins above the gap between the platforms, that he could try to catch them. It was pretty funny... Then he became to insult us as no one was sending him money.
I abruptly came back to reality and short after the train was coming...
I will definitely miss Paris.
