    Linda, this is another wonderful window for us. The Cherry Blossoms exhibit is stunning and I could stare at one slide for hours — I wish I could project these as large as they actually are! You are making amazing discoveries and thank you for sharing with those of us who hope to visit Paris some day again or for the first time ! Will you please give my best regards to Chantal? Thank you.

      Definitely I will pass on your regards to Chantal. We are trying to get her to visit us in the spring if COVID cooperates.

    Love the Damien Hirst! Much more interesting IMO than the Shark Tank. Thanks for sharing this, I had no idea he had changed so much.
    Great post.

      Yes, our neighbor said that some of his past work had been quite controversial.

    I doing some catch up on your posts. The Fondation Cartier is one of our favorites. I love the cherry blossom paintings! Those big splotches of paint! He must have gone throu paint by the barrel! And of course you know that Les Fous de l’Îles is one of our favorite restaurants that is the same but different! It has gone quite upscale through the years! Stay warm!

      Les Fous has a very limited menu right now. As do many places. Those gobs of paint were just for you!
