The train was late at Gare du Nord. My Lord Buddha was waiting on Platform 36. Patiently. The train led to nowhere, which was fine. Om mane padme… (Artist: WCA)

    • Come to think of it, you’re right. The rest of the station is… “business as usual”, mechanical, functional, except for this one. single platform… all the way at the end of the station. almost hidden.

    • No idea. Cheetah are a recurring form in Street art. Perhaps because of their elegance? I doubt any of the street artists featuring Cheetahs has ever seen one in the wild. Now cheetahs are very tame. Putting them together with a child seems a good combination?

      • Oh no. Don’t know Peru. (Will go) Egypt. (Won’t). 😉 Australia. I’d thought it a bit far but after the Asian trip I know we can take it. India. Paradoxically, since I was born there. But I need to “go back”. And I definitely want to know Asia better. What are your dream destinations?

      • A couple of years ago I still had two dream destinations: I was thinking of hiking Kilimanjaro, and going to India, particularly to Himachal Pradesh, to visit the grave of Nicholas Roerich. Now I don’t have any dream destinations, just hope I am fit enough to go and see my dearest.

      • Hiking Kilimandjaro is an option. My MOnt-Blanc friends did it a few years back.
        I’d never heard of Roerich. I like his style. Has a “comic stripe” flavour.
        And as going to you see your dearest that is the best dream destination. 🙂
        Stay fit. (You seem to be feeling better, right?)

    • Haha! Says the seasoned traveler who’s roamed the world to Papua and back? 😉
      Merci pour les visites, Julie. A bientôt. Your next post should come soon if read rhythms right. Look forward to it. And I will comment before that door closes.
