We were free last weekend, probably due to the fact that most travelers stayed home to participate in their elections. We took the opportunity to visit Emily and the kids in Parsi. Jos is in Australia at the moment, shooting a movie.
Emily had given me a crafts class in Paris for my birthday at a very nice place in Oberkampf, named Seize. On Saturday we took a workshop together, making wall hangings.
Sunday was the election and Emily took us along to her friend's house in Belleville, where there was an election party.
On Monday we went into Paris to visit Monet's waterlilies at the Orangerie. Ever since finishing Ross King's book, Mad Enchantment, about the last years of Monet, I have been wanting to revisit these paintings. Our friend Nelly accompanied us.
Here are a few photos for your entertainment.
