Monaco Street - Chopping to the Music, tra la


Whenever a new ingredient is added to the pan of snails the band plays and the music gets faster and louder by way of encouragement - see last photo. Above, the tomatoes are being chopped as quickly as possible in an effort to keep up with the music - that's why bits are falling off the board.

Meanwhile - in the smaller photo - life goes on in Monaco's market as a trolley packed up with shoe boxes is wheeled past the action.

What exuberance they are displaying, it must be quite lovely to be part of all this joy.

Great street entertainment. I hope the chef had a good eye, good rhythm, and all his fingers when he finished:)

So much for the Mediterranean slow food movement.
