Doc Nancy Is Back

Today, we spent a wonderful afternoon by the river Main. Doc Nancy was in her best mood when she got a ride on the BierBike, helping them cuties to keep the wheels spinning and the juices flowing. Who knew that chillin’ on a barrel could provide so much fun?

In next to no time, Doc Nancy will be back with her mathematical life counseling session. Get your burning questions ready because Doc Nancy will be happy to give you some valuable advice.

Bembel Ballet

Back in Frankfurt, I’ve finally overcome my jet lag. Last night we went to the ballet to see “Impressing the Czar” choreographed by William Forsythe in 1988 and now re-introduced under his guidance. It was performed by the Royal Ballet of Flanders, marking the first time this piece was done by another ensemble.
The last part of Czar has the whole troupe dancing in school girl uniforms to repetitive beats and cymbals. Thoughts of Britney Spears came to my mind, with all the male dancers basically being in Britney hit-me-baby-one-more-time drag.

In case you have to get tickets, go to the box office 10 minutes prior to the show and buy your last minute seats. It’s on for 3 more days only.

YSL

Before heading back to Germany, I spent the last couple of days in Montreal. The musée des beaux-arts de Montreal had just opened their retrospective to span 40 years of creation of Yves Saint Laurent. I was especially impressed by the 1965 wedding dress which still looks very modern today.
Below are pictures from the show, click to enlarge.

By now you have probably heard that the designer passed away this weekend.
