Metlinks OTW : 08.04.10

I am not sure about you but I’ve probably overstuffed myself with Easter chocolate. So no more chocolate for now. Maybe until next week or so. And here is this week’s edition of metlinks. :) Fun and Socials Woohoo, there’s a Venetian Carnival in town this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday from 2.30pm to 6pm […]

C’est le retour de la chasse au trésor !

Metlinks OTW : 16.04.10

Ah the chaos of flight cancellations, no thanks to the spread of the plumes of volcanic ashes from Iceland. I hope not many of you are affected by this incident. When the flights are back running as usual, and you’re packing but wondering what to bring, check out this Paris packing guide by Badaude. Actually […]

Metlinks OTW : 03.04.10

With a blink of an eye, it is now a few days into April and all the Easter temptations didn’t make it easy for me to resist buying a gazillion and one chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies, and the very cute chocolate ducks! Talking of Easter chocolates, there are chocolate hunts taking place on Sunday 4 […]

Que faire ce week-end à Paris ? Quelques suggestions.

Ce week-end, c’est le 11ème salon de la culture et des jeux mathématiques à Saint Sulpice ! D’anciens instruments scientifiques à de la dentelle au fuseau, il y a de quoi se divertir et s’instruire ! Mais aussi, ce week-end c’est l’occasion de (re)découvrir l’entrepôt MacDonald, le plus grand bâtiment de Paris, avant sa rénovation. Expos, [...]

Walking along the Seine

I think it was mentioned in an earlier metlinks but the banks of the river Seine will be seeing some changes until 2012. In the mean time, strolling along under blue skies is lovely. Some seem to fall head over heels in romance and scar the poor trees along the banks…

Metlinks OTW : 05.02.10

Another week, oh how time flies. January went by in no time, and there are signs of spring in the air. Maybe a tad too much red and pink for the upcoming Valentine’s Day, maybe a combination of red from the festivities of upcoming Chinese New Year. Do you know, this year, both these days [...]

Two-way bicycle paths in one-way streets?

Doesn’t this concept seem odd? I’ve always knows people riding bikes as having to follow the regular “code de la route“. Which meant, among other things: riding only one way on one-way streets and no riding on sidewalks. This could be very frustrating for those rinding on bicyles as it would mean a number of [...]

Monsters in the garden

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a Metlink to Sunrise East, an installation by Ugo Rondinone at Jardin des Tuileries. A few days later, I went along for a visit at the park just after sunrise. Here are the photos that I’ve taken on the rather chilly morning of what I think are rather [...]

Pierre Hermé and Xocoatl, the Drink of Gods

Musée du quai Branly is currently celebrating the Teotihuacan culture. Dubbed the City of Gods, it was a large city of Ancient Mexico steeped in cultural richness and absolutely fascinating in their way of life, politics, society, rituals, crafts, and certainly in their influences in other ancient societies. It is well known that the Mesoamerican [...]
