Mexican Memories chez Hiromi Otsuka, Rene Habermacher and Antoine Asseraf


Rene in 35 and Antoine and Francois

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Ever since Antoine Asseraf, Rene Habermacher and I got back from our trip to Mexico we've been talking about a Mexican memory dinner. So, with images of Rene's projected on the wall and Mexican music playing in the background before Antoine switched to a youtube video of the end of the world, a pleasurable experience was had by all. As the night progressed Rene's Mexican wrestling masks came out.

Dinner guests included Giorgio Martinoli, who said his mask was a child's size and they don't have any stretch to them, Francois Sagat who clearly was loving the masks, Hiromi Otsuka, Angela Paree and Yoko Miyake who managed to eat mango sorbet with masks on and Ferid Ouertani who did not wear masks. After the Mexican wrestlers came the Japanese masks. I had one of these but I don't have the image.
