Ad hoc culture
A cool and collected alternate rocker, Julius Caesar (or more likely his adopted heir, Augustus), with fluoro guitar, Ray Ban sunglasses and Converse sneakers--what the French call "baskets"--advertises local cultural events in Nîmes. The huge poster hides some of the restoration underway at the antique Roman arena in the city's center.

baskets:  any kind of tennis shoe, running shoe or sneaker
une arène: an arena
Jules César:  Julius Caesar
