7.7.14

Music, rain, flowers...


I went for a concert at the Bagatelle Park last Sunday. Rain, but the concert was indoors, in the “Orangerie”, the palm house, empty of orange trees and palms during the summer months. There is a “Chopin Festival” ongoing until July 14.  (You can book on “Classicagenda” in the sidebar.)

The roses are at least as beautiful with some rain drops. (See more about this park here, here and here.)


Saturday I had a very nice experience following a tour of Montmartre with a soprano, Veronica Antonelli, performing at some surprising places, including the vineyard, the calvary behind the Saint Pierre church… places you normally don’t accede. Crowds passing by, surprised, admired. (You can book a tour via a link on my sidebar.)

This looks positively charming. I hope it was.

Très originale cette promenade en compagnie de Veronica Antonelli! Et pour la pluie: un certain charme quand on ne doit pas s'éterniser dehors.

¡Que articulo delicioso!
Bagatelle, roses, Chopin and Mme. Antonelli!
And what did she sing?

Greetings from Orlando!
Had breakfast today at South Beach.
Walked by Gianni Versace's home, now a restaurant.... Parts of the house would remind you those luxurious villas the Romans had in Pompeii. ¡Alucinante!

Joli park, jolies fleurs, belles roses, et certainement une belle voix. Un concert de Chopin m'irait tout à fait bien.
