A l'ombre des jeunes filles en fleurs.

Found on the staircase known a Vendome staircase (though cinema Vendome does not exist anymore): Several A4 papers written by a man calling himself Zizi because his beloved is Zaza (nee Camille as we shall later discover). Neatly pasted in the morning, they were torn all over the place in the afternoon. Apparently Zaza might not have appreciated the exposure. All of this, in the age of facebook and text messaging is a touching reminder of what it was to write things on paper and be a teenager in love. Beirut/NTSC wishes the couple lasting happiness (which in teenage years equals surviving till Christmas as a couple, breaking up for New Year's eve and then getting back together before Valentine's day and definately splitting sometime in early spring - preferably before the Easter break).
