Jacques Demy & The Fleet Week

I'm in New York City for my job, with no time to go to the movies, unfortunately, but this doesn't mean I don't think about cinema.
In these last days, the city has been invaded by sailors: it is Fleet Week. Every time I see a sailor, I can't help myself: I immediately think about Jacques Demy and his Les Demoiselles de Rochefort, plenty of dancing sailors and girls wearing lovely dresses with bright colours. 
I am staying at this cute hotel, having a certain Mad Men style and the perfect name for the circumstance: Maritime Hotel. The other day, coming back from a dinner, you may not believe me but I actually saw a sailor and a beautiful girl dancing in the lobby.
I looked at them, puzzled: were they real or were they coming from my imagination?
They were real, simply part of the magical power that this city has.
I took the elevator and I started dancing myself. 
Nobody could see me, but I'm sure that Jacques Demy would have approved!

  1. It's amazing that you're back in New York. And in such an interesting place too - where you can see a dancing sailor and a woman! I can just picture it before my eyes. I think I even saw their reflections in the mirror.

  2. yes, I was lucky to be back to NY in such a short time! The weather was just perfect. I love everything of this city and during Fleet Week is even more interesting...
