Charmed again: my dinner with Agnes

I find our evenings with friends in Paris especially charming.  Could it be the views?    Tonight, yes, with a balcony facing the Tour Eiffel at night when the weather permits an open window to the balcony.  The Tour flashes at night and the searchlight on top spins 360 degrees.   Could it be the … Read moreCharmed again: my dinner with Agnes

My contribution to the exhibit at the Hotel d’ Ville’s exhibit in Paris

My contribution to the exhibit at the Hotel d’ Ville’s exhibit in Paris, an delightful exhibit about which I posted last week. It is a protest against the astronomical prices in the restaurants.

Rome December 12- 2 of 2

We went on our merry way to Santa Maria in Trastevere.  It is a magnificent church from tiled/mosaic floor to gilded ceiling.  And it’s quite old- it was finished in 1143.  Mary hangs out outdoors on the pediment in golden mosaics and Byzantine style. The floor tiles were donated by one of the wealthy families; … Read moreRome December 12- 2 of 2

Rome December 12 2011 (1 of 2) Misadventures on the way to Holy Mary

It seems I can not remember to both zipper up and do anything else all in the same day.  Today I remembered to zipper up so something had to give.  We were already on the tram heading for Santa Maria in Trastevere when I learned what it was.  My weekly transport pass.  It was not … Read moreRome December 12 2011 (1 of 2) Misadventures on the way to Holy Mary

Rome

We arrived in Rome Tuesday afternoon after a short flight from Valencia.  After meeting our landlord for the week- we rented a small flat in Trastevere near the train station- we had a bit of a rest,  and went to find a friend  at the school on top of the hill.  A colleague got her … Read moreRome

Klezmer at Restaurant les Trois Artes

April 21, 2012 Les Trois Artes http://les3arts.free.fr/ is a small place in the 20th arrondisement.  It sits upon a corner, seats maybe 20 people upstairs, and room for up to about 50 in the ‘cave’ downstairs.  The cave is typical of these sorts of establishments, stone walls frame the arched openings, rickety chairs and cheap … Read moreKlezmer at Restaurant les Trois Artes
