Still Ascending...

Stopping over in the 17th this afternoon to pick up some t-shirts and decorations for the annual "Immuebles en Fête" party on next Tuesday. The idea (started five years ago and now grown to 4.5 participants throughout Europe) is simple: a fun and festive get-together among neighbors, in the same building, to get to know each other better and to continue to create links (and drinks).

Finally got our scheduling together with Jutta & François, neighbors we often run into at la Comedia, and had an excellent dinner with them, and Florence, at Mouton. I took a risk and made a new dish - turned out not too bad.

Viva Gérard !

Off to a vernissage for our artist friend, Gérard Omez, at the nearby Villa Adrienne tonight. Earlier today Odile and I had a nice break at la Comedia with Benjamin and Florence (who agrees to help me use her genealogy research and database to try out some ideas I have on improved vizualization of connections/linkages between individuals - whether family, friends or workmates). Later we ran into Vesna (on the hunt for more strawberries for her kids!) - she still runs her art photo biz - take a look, if you haven't already, here.

After a full day of meetings I took the subway with colleagues to the Monastiraki railway station where we parted paths. From here, on the northeastern side of the Acropolis, I walked back to my hotel. A very enjoyable way to get to know the city (on this, my first ever visit).

We were taken out by our Greek colleagues to dinner at To Ouzadiko in the Kolonaki neighborhood of Athens.Very tasty mezedes (including fluffy keftedes), followed by a twelve-hour, oven-roasted pork dish that was truly succulent. All washed down by excellent ouzo.

Afrewards, a nitecap (Mythos) at the café Perros. Yasou!

Baron Buddies

Meeting the "gang" at the Baron Rouge for a pre-Armistice Day drink. That will help take my mind off the fact that I'll not have water back on until after the plumber's visit tomorrow!

Brazilian Paradise ...

I reached Odile by phone tonight (well, technically tomorrow since it's post-midnight) at Vila Abraão – Ilha Grande (run by Yayoi and Nilson) - a paradise (as you can see by the picture at left) that I plan to visit in the not too distant future with Madame O. - maybe for her bday (Shsss, don't tell!).

Check out the link above for more info: Y&N are both charming and multi-lingual ... just in case you're thinking of a trip to Brazil - on the coast, not all that far from Rio de Janeiro.

Myself, I took a well-deserved break tonight with some Pietra at le Baron Rouge and a small, but tasty Korean dinner.
