There a year, I did not drink tea, I hated it. And then everything changed when I went to London in February. I tasted jasmine tea in a small tea room very nice. And there, a revelation! I loved tea! Since then, I do not stop to drink. It’s a real pleasure to taste different teas or infusions. Moreover, since the Galeries Lafayette Gourmet reopened, I often train in range dedicated to teas (you might see me!).
Soon, I’d like to do an article on all of my favorite teas.
Otherwise, you like tea?
Last Friday, between classes and two inscriptions, I went to the exhibition at the Musée Maillol Borgia. I now studying art history at the Sorbonne, then I have no excuse for not going to the exhibitions.
On the merits, I found the exhibition interesting, there are a lot of paintings and objects. But you can find explanation for each member of the Borgia family. It’s easier to recontextualize things and be on one point: this family was a little disturbed. But it is above all a time. There are of course the presence of Leonardo da Vinci, long supported by Cesare Borgia, great art enthusiast. The exhibition is the exciting time of the Borgias, rebirth.
I most appreciated the tables. These paintings are sublime. Their different style impressed me. It looks like a century separates each time.
The day after the show, I redraw in my moleskine (above) that I preferred. That is also the best known.
Still, I think the show is a bit short. We want more (we always want more!).
