I saw Paris in the spring, summer and fall. I want to see it immensely during winter, snowy, cold and deserted. To climb the stairs of Montmartre and freeze my hand on the railing. And get warm in a Parisian café with a hot tea. And take pictures, many, many pictures.
Until then (who knows when I will be in Paris with snow …) I enjoy the beautiful memories and landscapes of Paris in pictures. I tried a black & white version. Here’s what came out (I like them very much):
Paris in alb si negru
L-am vazut primavara, vara si toamna. Imi doresc enorm sa-l vad si iarna, inzapezit, rece si pustiu. Sa urc pe scarile din Montmartre si sa imi inghete mana pe balustrada. Sa ma incalzesc intr-o cafenea pariziana cu un ceai fierbinte. Si sa fac poze, multe, multe poze.
Pana atunci (cine stie cand voi fi in Paris cu zapada…) ma delectez cu frumoasele amintiri si peisaje pariziene din poze. Am incercat si o varianta alb negru. Iata ce a iesit (mie imi place foarte mult):
We gathered for a carnivorous Halloween evening at Melanges a Trois cafe in Brussels, owned by 2 of our friends. They cooked Asado (the Argentinian way of preparing barbecue, I will describe it further in the post).
Thank you guys for the effort of organizing such a nice evening.
Ne-am adunat pentru o petrecere de Halloween la cafeneaua Melanges a Trois, deschisa nu de mult de niste prieteni in Bruxelles. A fost o seara carnivora (o sa vedeti mai jos despre Asado, un stil argentinian de a gati carnea la gratar).
Asado (meat cooked in Argentinian style, cooked slowly for a few hours on hot coals. The result is a very soft, tender meat, very easy to chew. It melts in the mouth. In the photo is a full lamb).
Asado (carne gatita in stil Argentinian. Aici e un miel intreg. Carnea e gatita la distanta de carbunii incinsi, timp de cateva ore, rezultatul fiind o carne foarte frageda care se topeste in gura).
Opened this October in Brussels by two friends of ours, Melanges a Trois is a cafe in Brussels which I had the chance to photograph at their opening party.
Stop by if you are looking for a quiet place in Brussels to work on your computer, to sip a cup of good Italian coffee or a good wine. They have a private garden in the back, so if it’s sunny is a great place to relax. For more details like opening hours and address, this is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/loisirologie
“A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A dog doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he’ll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?” (quote from Marley and Me)
Oameni si cateii lor in diferite tari europene. Mereu loiali, mereu rabdatori.
“Un caine nu are nevoie de masini fitoase, case mari sau haine de firma. Unui caine nu ii pasa daca esti bogat sau sarac, istet sau plictisitor, destept sau prost. Da-i iubire si el te va iubi. Despre cati oameni poti spune asta?, cati oameni te pot face sa te simti special, extraordinar?” (citat din filmul Eu si Marley).
