    Pompidou Centre

    September 23, 2019 in France ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    So here we are. Deep breath for Bob and off we go. Not too busy. All the works relate to six literary, poetic and philosophical texts from books in Bacon's library (eg the Wasteland, Heart of Darkness, Oresteia) and booths were set up where you could hear the text being spoken. Struggled a bit with the concept but still enjoyed (if that's the right word) the exhibition. Dark, savage, visceral - what's not to like?!Read more

    How is Bob?

    He survived - just! Needed a large glass of red afterwards though...

    Did you have the wine at the Pompidou Bar? I’ll never forget them tipping two large glasses of red all over me, and not being terribly apologetic - Got to love that French hauteur!

    First Full Day in Grand Paris

    July 1, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Another long, full day! Left the flat by 9am and walked over to the Louvre. Spent about two hours visiting, mostly in the Denon wing, enjoying sculpture (Greek, Roman & Egyptian) and Italian paintings, including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa of course. They've made the latter harder to see with a bellied wood railing and then a roped off area, which I understand, but is too bad. The kids seemed to enjoy much of it and we opted to keep it short and sweet and hope to come back to see more in the coming days.

    Decided to trek out to the Arc de Triomphe via Metro, which I saw with Jess, but didn't climb. The rotary traffic is insane with 12 spokes and seeming free-for-all. The eternal flame and war memorials are quite poignant. Up the narrow, spiral staircase of the largest man-made arch in the world we went. A stunning sunny day meant we could see quite a ways. The kids were both very excited for their first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower - funny and cute because they wanted to make sure I saw it.

    We had a casual lunch at an Italian bistro nearby, before strolling down the length of the Champs Élysée (kind of sad to see how many US brands have joined the fray...Foot Locker?!?) to the L'Orangerie museum to check out Monet's water lillies and fellow Impressionists. Fortunately, it is a relatively small museum as we started petering out. Grabbed the Metro back to our neighborhood, a light dinner, and reading.

    Funny note - Logan's blue hair is getting many more stares here than it did in London (where it recieved a ton of compliments)! We've only seen one other person with colorful hair. Tom gets a kick out of watching people's reactions (I hardly notice his hair anymore.)

    Aux abords du C. Pompidou, Paris, France

    January 22, 2014 in France ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    J'ai acheté trois cartes postales ! J'ecrirai à mes amies bientôt.

    Et aussi, deux livres français.
    J'aime le conte 'Charlie et la Chocolaterie'
    J'ai vu aussi ce film auparavant, c'était amusant pour moi.
    Il n'y a aucune raison de ne pas acheter ce livre ^___^
    Par parenthèse, sa couverture est très douce au toucher.

    Parijs: dag 1

    January 4, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Paris is always a good idea. Dit tweedaags tripje kwam als geroepen en is dolle pret.

    Het grootste deel van de dag hebben we gewandeld. Langs het Louvre, de Tuileries, Musee des Arts Décoratifs, de Notre Dame, Centre Pompidou... om dan (meestal bij het zien van de rij) te beslissen om te door te lopen. Nadat we van de ene toeristische trekpleister naar de andere waren gelopen, was een pannenkoek pauze ideaal. Anderhalve Bretoense pannenkoek later gingen we richting hotel.

    Het inchecken bleek een gedoe. Wij morden wat in het Nederlands en uiteraard sprak de vrouw aan de receptie ook Nederlands. Gênant, but oh well. Al bij al een tof madammeke, en wij zijn op de kamer geraakt.

    's Avonds gingen we terug naar Pompidou en wandelden we elke verdieping af tot we omvielen van de honger. En zoals het verwarde Antwerpse hipster betaamt zijn we vegan pizza gaan eten in Hank Pizza. Lekker lekker.

    Morgen gaan we een poging ondernemen om in Musee des Arts Décoratifs binnen te geraken voor de Dior tentoonstelling (vandaag was de rij vijf uur lang😢). Ik ben benieuwd!
