  1. Quel beau kaleidoscope 🙂 Je me disais que ces architectures et ces sculptures sont tellement europeennes, on se reconnait dans cette histoire. Mais la nature et l’espace que nous offre encore l’Asie, c est unique aussi. Tu as aussi vecu au Sri Lanka?

    • Merci. J’aime bien ces mélanges… 🙂 Non, ne je n’ai pas vécu à Ceylan. J’étais pas encore né, mais comme mes parents étaient à Karachi, ils ont voyagé dans tout le sous-continent, y compris Ceylan. Et comme on a scanné tous leurs albums… Je partage. Toi tu as été en Inde et á Ceylan?

      • J’ai vecu en Inde pres de 2 ans et travaille 6 mois au Sri Lanka, apres le tsunami. J’y suis retourne ensuite avec Marcel et Maelle en mission, mais bizaremment je n’ai jamais accroche a ce pays. Ni pour, ni contre, bien au contraire 😉

      • Vraiment 100% humanitaire. 🙂 Croix-rouge toujours, ou MSF? Je pense que l’Inde est un univers à part. J’en suis parti trop jeune pour me souvenir. Mes parents préféraient le Pakistan à l’Inde. Il faudra quand même que j’aille en Inde. (S’ils me laissent rentrer avec mon passeport “Born in Karachi…) 🙂
        PS. tu disais qq part que tu avais fait “10 ans d’humanitaire”. Qu’est ce qui t’a poussé?

  2. This time the theme appears to be ‘looking at/watching’. Dunno why I’m always trying to find a common denominator for every batch of photos. 🙂

    I wonder, could you read at that age or were you just trying to show off? 🙄 Your sister looks very serious (and pretty) in that photo. 🙂

    Blue is one of my favorite colors, I like the painting in first photo and especially the way the street reflects in the display glass.

    I guess we used to live in a huge soap bubble that just got burst. Pas plus de la vie en rose. Lasciate ogni speranza voi ch’entrate (nella vita).
    Sorry, today I’m a bit dark, may be the weather. Waiting for a Spring that got caught in traffic.

    • Could be the theme. There is always structure everywhere. Even in Chaos. My idea in these posts is variety in time and space. I did know how to read (and to show off) already. 🙂 My sister had a tangle of hair, never combed and hated it. My mother had just brushed her hair. (For half an hour I think) hence the seriousness. And yes, the soap bubble just burst. need to blow another one. 🙂 Vive le Bleu!
