A somewhat uneventful day. I did my laundry, which took a couple hours. I originally planned to drop my laundry off, but it was apparently a holiday so stores were closed. Instead, I used the hotel’s laundry room, which wasn’t perfect but had to do. Oh well!

All the beautiful doors!

Cannes3

More charming buildings.

I went into town for a bite to eat — an awesome kebob sandwich – and did a little souvenir shopping at the official Cannes gift shop, which is very silly.

At 6, I went to the ticket raffle and won a ticket to Wara no Tate. I went with Mary and had a lot of fun. We saw a bunch of stars on the red carpet — Clive Owen, Marion Cotillard, and James Franco! Unfortunately, Tatsuya Fujiwara wasn’t there in person, but I enjoyed watching him on the screen (I’ve actually met him before in 2008 at The Kennedy Center’s Japan: Culture + Hyperculture Festival).

Can’t wait to attend another screening!!!
