[Video] Playing the honky tonk piano at a train station in Paris

Cristelle playing the piano at Issy-Val de Seine RER C train station. Screengrab

Every day around 12,000 passengers go through Issy-Val de Seine station just outside Paris. They take either the RER C train or the tram. But they could also play the honky tonk piano that was put there. We met Christelle, a student, just before the piano was removed. It was already in a very poor state because of the rain.
