IF you are kicking back over the next few days then here are some interesting websites and stories to discover.
A Palestinian, a juggler and an oud takes you to a show in Paris that features the artistic talents of an unlikely duo.
A juggler and the player of an oud, an Arabic lute, combine to produce a magical show, but upon following up on the group mentioned in the piece, the Joubran Trio, you can experience some equally mesmerising music.
The trio are brothers from Palestine, who have performed around the world, but also have connections to Paris, and their site features a documentary about their work together.
Continuing the musical theme and next stop is the Occitan sounds of Coriandre whose site features music clips, but details about traditional dancing and polyphonic songs.
Keeping the multimedia theme running, why not improve your French language skills and burn off a few pounds via the Vod eMotion website?
Similar in style to YouTube the site offers a range of videos from exercise classes to improving your business skills, alongside some comedy clips, food and drink and even lessons on decorating the home - next time the builders are in just show them a video or two.
And finally if you are looking to stretch the legs after over indulging on a mince pie or two, then take the city route with novelist Will Self, who talks about psychogeography on World Hum, and opened my eyes to the gentleman strollers of Paris streets, or flâneur.
