Stranger Than Fiction

You know how "they" say everyone has a twin, well it's true.

When we visited the sleepy little village of Azay le Rideau it became a strange reality.

Sadly I have no pictures to prove this, so you'll just have to take my word for it, but Weird Al Yankovic's twin is an artist that paints the most beautiful portraits of children in India. And in 1997 he ran a small shop in France selling his sketches of the local chateau and his paintings. We had a little conversation about his art. I don't remember what I said because the whole time I was thinking, "I'm talking to Weird Al."

Strange, huh?

Even the hair was the same.
