My post “One year project” is about very special subject. I was doubt at all to show it in this particular place because here most of the people are interested in the poetry, literature, history, photography, philosophy, culinary, nature, entertainment, etc. However, some visitors showed interest in this topic and asked to continue publishing. It is the reason of my next post. I am not going to load all of the visitors with detailed guide how to do it. I only would like to place some pictures about what was done and how it looks in progress. It is just very brief set of pictures even about framing.
With that purpose, to save the time for visitors who is not really interested in that subject I put all of the pictures in gallery where you can see all of them in a small size at once. For those who is interested please click on any picture in gallery and follow by arrow to watch pictures in bigger size one by one.
The trumpeter swans adorn the winter landscape of the La Salle Park every single year. However, they are not so numerous this year.
“Give a girl the correct footwear and she conquer the world”.
While being in Paris the restaurant Le Grand Colbert was chosen for the fortieth anniversary lunch. It is located on a quiet small street Rue Vivienne right behind Palais-Royal. To avoid crowd we decided to come there a little bit later than regular lunch hours. What a surprise was waiting for us? The entrance door did not have a handle to come in. I tried to knock, and then made a signs through the window to waitress to open the door, but no reaction followed. We were about to leave with a huge frustration. Suddenly the car stopped in front of an entrance and a young man with a bouquet of flowers came to the door. Somebody from inside opened the door for him. I asked this person if they are opened and work and had the positive answer. Then I told him they are in trouble because there is no handle that means no customers. 🙂 He was really surprised, apologized and invited us inside. From this point the rest of visit was amazing.
The restaurant is really inviting and homey. Soft light, comfortable couches and chairs, and nice staff made environment friendly and cozy. But the real pleasure came with wine and meals. Food was delicious. Desert impressed us totally. The restaurant is not pricy at all – reasonable money for the delicious food.
Now I understand why the movie “Something’s Gotta Give” used to make one scene in here.
