Memory of Fontainebleau

"A Night Train to Nowhere" We stay awake all night on the train back to Fontainebleau from the South of France tour. Everyone - including Pierre Devinoy - is crammed into a tiny sleeper room, singing our hearts out to every American junk pop-song we can remember. M. Devinoy is transfixed. Imagine the Coasters' "Searchin", pounded out on a beautiful Spanish Flamenco guitar. It is one of those sweet moments at Fontainebleau when time seems to stop.
