Rubik’s Cube

Today I went to check out fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac’s exhibition on his work. He gets a lot of influences from Pop Art, English pop music and modern-time icons from cartoon figures to soda brands. JC/DC’s world is very colorful and multi-faceted – like the Rubik’s Cube. In the first exhibition hall the visitor is confronted with two huge cubes, and mirrors that are omnipresent. All this with a sharp disco lighting.

We Wii

Oui oui, it’s true, we wii – and you? So you guessed, after the due time of psychological preparation Sebu bought the game console. Wiis are the newest hype in Paris.

We toasted with Champagne, the third time in a row for me at his house. Not bad!

Our visit to the Alps was truly refreshing. Actually I was more impressed by the scenery that I had expected. Sebu’s big bro Stephane and family live in a small village, in a valley from where you can see the Mont Blanc. We had a picmic up on the hills, visited a trendy ski resort Megeve and had some god ‘ol mountain food called tartiflette – a cheece, potato, bacon and onion casserole. Sturdy stuff for sure.
