  • Ullysses

    Paris, Greec, restaurant, 75014, food

    The hot summer in Paris should lead you away from the traditional French cuisine with its cream and butter. At least that is what it does to me. So I ended up with a friend in a Greek restaurant. 'Odyssée'    is located 54 rue Daguerre in the 14th. You know Daguerre, he is one of the inventors of photography along with Niepce also in France and in the UK, Talbot.

    The ambiance for a mid-week day was quite nice. The maitre d' very nonplussed but diligent brought excellent dishes. Fried cod with fried zucchini in garlic sauce for me, a mix of cold starters for my friend. The house red was round, tasty and powerful. Halva for dessert and - of course - Greek coffee.

    All in all a very good experience which I can only recommend.



  • Exhibition in Hotel Scribe, Paris


    Muriel Bordier, photo, exposition, exhibition, White Cube, Hotel Scribe, Paris, France

    Hotel Scribe in Paris is hosting an exhibition of photographs and videos by Muriel Bordier titled "White Cube".

    I was lucky enough to receive an invitation to attend the vernissage. The artist (right on the above photograph) is a mischievous looking woman living in Brittany. Chatting with her was in itself a great pleasure. And I really enjoyed her pictures. They look simple from afar but are truly quite sophisticated.

    Françoise Gaudin, Communication and Public Relation Director and her assistant Julie Séevagen also present were kind enough to give me an insight into the history of the hotel and its long relationship with the fixed and moving image world.

    The Hotel Scribe also has a very pleasant tea room or 'Maison de Thé' where you can taste exclusive Asian brews in fine bone china cups whilst indulging yourself with a delightful pastry. A heaven of peace in the busy shopping district where I stop whenever possible.
