Have a nice weekend!

Enjoy the sunshine wherever you are, take the time to read a good book, seat in the grass and listen to the birds... In the meantime, I'll be at work thinking about y'all!

Today, here in the UK, everyone is going on about the Royal Wedding, but for me this day is my parents' 30th anniversary. Happy anniversary!

De Budapest à Etyek...

I wanted to share some of this images I took during my holiday in Hungary. These are not particularly linked together. I just like the modern/rural dichotomy.

My 2-years-old cousin and his mobile phone.
My aunt's work, traditional ceramic dishes.
Two carps in my uncle's bathtub.
The giant glass whale on the Danube bank. Just where was once the Buddha beach (for those who remember it).

Lazy morning

I flew back to England yesterday.

Today is my last day of holidays, and it feels like a sunday. The weather is gorgeous and the house is quiet.

Being in Hungary was enriching but also tiring. My mother has 7 brothers and sisters, consequently, we are 35 grand children and now 37 grand-grand children. It's a lot of people to visit. And still, I didn't have enough time to see everyone. It is really frustrating because I love them all so much and see them so little. Between a visit and the next one, cousins get pregnant, babies are born, those babies become toddlers, toddlers become children, children become teenagers and so on...

I guess "c'est la vie!", it will always be like this, there is always someone you love who's far away...

All the Buildings in New York

I've just discovered this artist's blog via Blogger.

James Gulliver Hancock is a young Australian expat in Brooklyn, New York, who decided to draw all the buildings in New York.

I think it's a great challenge.

It made me think about a secret project Elena and I had in the Paris' tube...

Anyways, I'm going to check James' posts regularly, to feed my NYC dream...

If you like it, you can buy prints or originals on his blog!


I'm in Hungary with my family for a bit. Happy spring everyone!
