Your pics are amazing, Reiko, thank you so much for sharing with us!
I just have a remark about the 3rd pic in the blog entry http://blog.goo.ne.jp/reiko_nl/e/c1b...0946aab418daed
, the young guy with the OXD shirt. I don't understand your comment in Japanese, of course, but I see a question mark, so maybe you're asking who he is?
He looks like the "mysterious guy" everybody was looking for in GM some time ago (pls help: does anyone know who is this player???
). If that's him, I asked a friend who lives in Monte Carlo and she told me he's not a professional player at all, it's a guy from her tennis club and he was just there as a sparring-partner.
