I have never been a fan of street-performers - till we met Alex. He was showing his smooth 'ball games' with elegant rhythm in front of the Notre Dame; he was summoning the ball and making it dance over his body - at times, he was whispering to the ball, and, meditating - it was very intent. I was impressed with his dexterity - it felt hypnotic. We could see flipped images of Notre Dame, us and, other people inside the ball.
It was a very entertaining performance.
