In architecture class we took a walk around paris, and checked out the Villa de l’Ermitage, a little village of villas in a corner of Paris. Walls covered with plants and cracks noting the years gone by, wheat pasted vintage images, flowers and cats. A sweet surprise to find in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. Check out the website of their association for more info and photos and videos, yay http://vivavilla.e-monsite.com/ .
A night at l’Opéra Garnier de Paris with the family: Cendrillon de Rossini, impressive architecture, champagne, bow ties and dresses that sparkle. After a little opéra, a little feast at the Restaurant de L’Opéra; a red and white sort of lava filled spaceship space, with futuristic restrooms and experimental platters.
A wonderful place to meet creative souls from around the world who speak french and/or english. I checked out spoken word paris at le Chat Noir bar/cafe a few months ago and was so glad to have discovered it. On Monday nights anyone can present their work as long as they sign their name on the list before the show starts.
When I went a few months back, at the end of the night, this duo came up and played a few songs; a great way to end the night.
