Monday March 29th 2010, Capri, Italy
Edwige and I spent the day in Capri on Monday, a beautiful island in the south of Naples, known in France as a french singer sang he found his first love in this Island. Whatever.
We almost missed the boat to go to the island, but we finally made after a long trip walking down the cliff to reach the harbour.
When we get to Capri, we are in awe by the beauty of the city, built on the cliff all over the island, but still, we are wondering how the hell we're going to be able to walk up there.
We finally see the funicular. YEAH. Let's go!
When you get up on the upper Capri, the view is simply amazing and the streets coveres in stones, white houses and...CHIC boutiques : Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, well nothing I could afford buying. So I desperately (NOT) dive into a wonderful italian biscuit boutique and buy some to come home with (most of them made it home safe, just a few were eaten by a silly french woman.ME).
At 11:50, we walk by a nice pizzeria and decide that we might come back here for lunch. Later. We're not hungry now. Let's go walk again and get lost in these amazing little streets.
At around 2pm, we could feel our stomachs cry out for food. Even though we walked by some amazing pizzeria restaurants, we decide to go back to the first one we saw.
We ask for a table on the terrace. Unfortunately (and fortunately later on), they invite us to sit at one table, in the shadow. We get cold and ask to be moved to another one, right under the sun.
hmmmmm...we feel so good.
Let's order pizza now.
Margherita and Capriciosa pizzas ordered.
Beautiful pizzas coming.
and YUMMY YUMMY! They're delicious!
While I eat, I look at the customers getting on the terrace and there comes this lady. I say to myself "hmmm...she has a very special look but i LOVE her dress and her shoes are cool".
Then I look up at her face.
I say "Oh fuck".
I immediately recognize this woman, being a fan of her work for ages, and then I remember she is the wife of my FAVORITE movie director on Earth.
I look for him.
And here he is.
Second "OOOOOOH FUUUUUUUUCK".
Edwige says "what the hell is wrong with you?"
And I say "$ù$ù%%£*%%£*%% (rude words erased), Helena Bonham Carter and TIM BURTON ARE HERE!!!!!!!!!!!"
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
Seriously, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter arrived in the restaurant with their children, friens and the girl that plays Alice in the movie Alice in Wonderland, and Edwige and I were scared to interrupt them during their lunch.
I simply TORTURED myself for over 30 minutes to know how the hell I was going to go and talk to them and TAKE A PICTURE with them!
I decide to write them a note, asking whether we could wait after they finish up their meal so that we can take a picture but I can't even finish it as they get up and are ready to leave the restaurant!
All of a sudden, I jump out of my chair, grab my camera, grab to Helena and ask for a picture, telling her how much I love her and blah blah...
Tim is busy paying for his bill so I'm waiting...and then, I ask him to take a picture and he smiles back at me and says "of course ladies! My pleasure!"
And I tell him how much I love him, that he's a genius and he is soooo nice!
We shake hands, he leaves the restaurant and Edwige and I jumps up and down screaming in the restaurant! :D
I was TOTALLY CRAZY!!!
I would have never thought of meeting my idol in such a unexpected way so imagine my face when I saw him! :)
I love him even more now that I saw how nice and simple this guy is :)
Ok now you can hate me :D
