It has definetly been a minute since my last blog post, but here I am back with lot of old content to cover! We will start with catching up on trips...
It feels so distant from now that I ended my time at Chhaap, came back to America for a wedding, and was off to galavant through Europe. At the same time, I can still taste sugarcane juice and remember how disappointed I was to be leaving mango season. I can still taste those pretzels from Germany, espresso from Italy, and falafel from Paris. I guess it seems like my memories come from food!
Instead of going through the trip through words and I am going to take you to a photo documentation of it instead.
The route was: Backnag - Munich - Bergamo - Milan - Parma - Rome - Minori - Remini - Venice - Paris
My take away from this trip lies in Paris. How can so much amazing art have its home in one city!? There was this walk in Giverny from Monet’s garden back to the bus that just left me in awe. That field of yellow flowers has made its abstract way into my work and was the first real time I started using yellow. Now two years later, there is a little series of textiles that have some of that yellow in it and I am absolutely loving the direction.
I'll leave you with recommendations for vegetarian friendly restaurants in Paris:
Hanks for veggie burgers in Marais
Luz Verde for great tacos
Les Barav for wine/cheese bar
Las Deux Falafel for the best falafel I have ever had
Ginger Cafe for vegan food
