"I need gas money for my Ferrari" his sign says and he sits there smiling, while hundreds of feet wearing shoes whose value could feed him for a month pass by, rushing to the glitz and glamor, running to attend a film premiere. Only minutes later the French police has him removed.

Strange encounters in the Palais. (No drugs, guaranteed.)
