The good thing...

... of having a daughter who lives in Paris.
We discover places, museums and galleries which are normally not on the typical "To-Do-List"
of a tourist.
Last time we discovered the charming museum and studio of Antoine Bourdelle. 
Thank you Catherine Goron.

Antoine Bourdelle worked here from 1885 until 1929, but it seems as if he just left for a coffee to return to his work.

Bourdelle joined Rodin as his assistant and continued to pursue his own career. He left the studio of Rodin in 1908.

A Walk in my Neighbourhood

Many houses in and around the Loire Valley in France are made out of tuffeau or limestone.
It is very sandy and soft and is easily excavated. Most of the famous castles are made out of this stone as well as whole villages.

 Stones of various ages and decay. This is part of my garden.

Villandry - one of the many beautiful palaces .

Time is passing

When I started this blog the purpose was to do 
with my photos. Over the time I started to link up to other blogs, looking at how many comments and followers I was getting.
A waste of time.
After many changes in my life, changing house, country and language I will treat my blog as a kind of diary.
No ambitions and no pressure.

Quiet times.

Burquin Church

Church of the Ten Lepers 

The church is also called Saint George`s church and is one of the oldest churches in the world.
According to the new New Testament it was here that Jesus crossed the village on his way from Galilee to Jerusalem and healed 10 lepers. 
The origin of this church goes back to Byzantine era and was constructed inside the cave where the miracle happened.
I am not a religious person but this little church was fascinating from a historical point of view.
A true little gem.
