I HAVE TO BUY NEW SHOES

Hey, why don't you take a picture?

A picture?

OK...

Let's go over by the river.

Excuse me, Turn right over there

and down to the river.

River? What river?

The Seine?

Oh, I've heard of that.

You have, huh?

It's famous, right?

Paris, the Seine...

Yeah, it's big.

Here?

Yeah, yeah. Great.

This is great!

Yeah.

Let's take a picture.

That building's famous.

Notre Dame.

Uh-huh.

Get that in, too.

With you?

OK, pose...

Let me see.

I think I got it all...

Now we're here,

let's take a real picture.

With the camera you hold like this...

The Hasselblad?

Let's not get that out now.

It's OK. I'll get it.

What's gotten into you?

That's a great sky!

Sen, here it is!

It's OK, I'll get it.

Let's see...

OK...

Drive!

Thanks for coming out, Sen!

Now it's time for brother and sister

to part ways! 'Bye!

Hey, wait! Suzume! Suzume!

Made it!

Great!

What is she up to?!

Damn it!

OK, I'll see you at 2, then.

I'm looking forward to it. See you.

Thanks.

Are you ok?

I'm fine. I just tripped.

Japanese?

Yes. Hello.

Hello.

Look...

You're not hurt?

No, I just sort of went over.

I think I stepped on that.

It's my passport.

What?

Don't look.

I think I'd better.

It'll be OK.

I don't know about that.

You should check with the embassy.

The embassy?

Avenue Hoche, between Courcelles

and Faubourg Saint-Honor.

I'd take you there,

but I'm in a hurry.

I'll write the address.

Do you live here?

Yes.

I've been here a while,

but I'm still not used to it.

There.

That's the address.

And...

...my card.

It's a free paper for Japanese.

You're the editor?

It's pretty small.

That's my number.

Let me know what happens.

Or for any other problems.

Thank you.

I'm sorry.

Not at all.

You're in a hurry, right?

Excuse me!

You forgot this.

Oh.

Wait...

I think I have something...

Here.

Krazy Glue!

This should hold it.

For a while.

Yeah.

Ms 'Teshigawara'?

Yes, but call me Aoi.

'Teshigawara' is hard to say.

I'm Sen Yagami. Call me Sen.

OK, 'Yagami' is easy.

Right.

Is there anywhere here

you'd recommend?

Sorry?

Your favorite place in Paris.

Where would that be?

Oh...

Where?

It's nowhere special.

I see...

Hang on...

That should do it.

Thank you.

Try it.

It fits!

I guess it should,

since it's my shoe.

Good luck with your work.

Right.

And with your passport.

I'll do my best.

My passport...

Next window, please.

Thanks.

Hello.

Chocolate eggs came in the 1 800s.

Before that...

...they were made at home...

...hand-painted.

First they were boiled very hard.

Or else...

...you take the egg...

...put a small hole in both ends...

...and blow hard.

Three eggs and you're red in the face.

Yes.

So...

...I'm not speaking too fast?

No, I understand.

May I take pictures?

Of course.

The Easter-egg hunt is a tradition.

Parents hide eggs outside...

...like gifts under a Christmas tree.

The children go and hunt for them.

I'd always take hours to find mine.

My father didn't want it to be easy.

I'd start crying...it was horrible.

But that's what got me into this work.

And here we are.

Want my picture?

Sure.

Let's do it.

Ready.

Three, two...

Wait.

Three, two, one...

How about like this?

One more.

Great.

Fantastic.

Thank you.

My pleasure.

Your phone.

Got it. Goodbye.

Sayonara.

...leave a message after the tone.

Her message is all in French...

Please leave a message.

Uh, it's Yagami.

The passport looks like it's OK.
