Our acquaintance with Japanese culture continues with a wonderful temporary exhibition about the era of Meiji In the Museum of Guimet. 
This exhibition highlights the many upheavals associated with the Meiji era (1868-1912) and deals with various aspects of the modernization of Japan and the internationalization of artistic production through different artistic techniques.
Just a few photos to give a general idea of the exhibition.

A little visit to the zoo with my sidekick before his Rugby. We really enjoyed it considering we are used to the incredible Chester Zoo. A safari drive through first which we saw the incredible hippos for the first time. Followed by a walk around the zoo with good viewings on tigers, jaguars, lions, and sea lions. We will be back 🦁🐒🐅🦏🐘🐯🦃

Yesterday we had a lovely visit at Chateau Mazeyres in Pomerol. The nowadays 25.5HA estate was founded in the 18th century, 12HA of vines are situated around the chateau and the remaining HA’s are scattered around the Pomerol appellation.
In 1988 the Querre family sold the estate to Société Générales Pension fund. 1992 Alain Moueix was appointed the manager of the Chateau, he renovated the chateau and modernized the vinification which increased quality of the wines. In 2010 the estate was sold again to Sogecap, current owners.
The Chateau got it’s Organic certification in 2015 and the biodynamic certification only a few weeks ago, vintage 2018 will be the first biodynamic certified vintage, although the vineyards has been farmed using biodynamics since 2012.
As many other Chateaus in the region, Chateau Mazeyres also had problems with the mildew this year. Compared with 2016 the production decreased from 43HL/HA to 25HL/HA in 2018. In 2017, 57% of the grapes was lost to the frost.
The vineyards are planted with 73% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. One of the plots close to the Chateau was planted in 1957, these vines used to suffer from diseases but after converting to biodynamic farming the vines recovered and the yield has increased. The grapes are harvested manually by 46 pickers.
The chateau produces two wines, Chateau Mazeyres and the second wine Le Seuil de Mazeyres. The annual production varies depending on vintage but is about 100.000 bottles of which 60% is the first wine. Which plots that will be used for the first vs. second wine is decided with a blind tasting.
The wine is aged 12-14 months, after 5-6 months a pre-blend is made and the wine is then aged again before bottling.
For the tasting we were joined by the winemaker, Ludovic Guibert. We got a lovely vertical tasting of Chateau Mazeyres, vintages 2013/14/15/16. All vintages completely different, but keeping the identity of the chateau with fresh wines. The wines are acidic and well balanced, the more excellent vintages can be kept up to 20 years. The use of sulphur is decreased year over year but they do not believe that they will do a wine completely without added sulphur.

Last one for motion and may I say just how much I love living in an area where medieval history is alive. I love the Vendée and I believe that you should put this area on your bucket list. Starting tomorrow I'll post some abstract or portraits.

The sign may say “ferme” but that won’t stop us from exploring ✨✨ #latepost #lifeinfrance
Lovely stroll by the lake this afternoon before the snow arrives... and watching a beautiful sunset like this - is one of my most favourite things!!! Just look at that view!! 😍☀️

Making the most of it before we road trip back to the UK for Christmas! 🎄🌟🎅🏼

While everyone thinks we’re daintily eating croissants for breakfast every single day, this is what’s really going on behind the doors of a French kitchen.
The daily news + bread + coffee or tea + maybe jam x definitely butter

Impressive Acts I-IV; soon to be Act V. by gilets jaunes, joined by the Union Boss of Labor for transport, and students. Emmanuel Macron was very pusillanimous and unconvincing last night in his short speech (13 minutes) and didn’t convince 60% of the French afterwards, said France Info today. His disgraceful neoliberal actions towards students alone would make me mistrust him, but towards everyone less than über rich,  it is a despicable spectacle. Speech: “too little, too late too many tricks/ traps,” as someone said.  This man is fundamentally trying to gut the socialist protections: among them  health care, education, social security,  in the French economy and make it more “banker friendly .” Outside,  in Provence and around, there does not seem to be a diminished gilet jaune determination.

❓А ВЫ ЗНАЕТЕ что такое TELETHON? Это такая ассоциация во Франции, которая собирает деньги на лечение редких болезней (крови, печени, мышц) у детей. И делает это с помощью различных мероприятий.

Государство не выделяет средств на исследования, т.к. эти болезни встречаются не часто.

Мы попали на одну из таких активностей и стали на один вечер альпинистами. В лицее Bertollet.

5 евро один подъем (со спуском, разумеется), 10 евро за два. И 15 евро пока не надоест.

Около 180  альпинистов в сумме преодолели 9116 метров. Это на 54% больше высоты Килиманджаро, высота которого 5895 метров. Поставленную цель превзошли.

Более 88 человек, не членов клуба, взошли на стену и поднялись на высоту 3232 метра.

Предполагается, что будет пожертвовано более 6000 евро.

Дети получили удовольствие!

Всем здоровья!

Photography is a challenge for me, and I am no expert, but I am in love with it. Capturing the motion of the pottery wheel while keeping the potter in focus was difficult. The beauty about photography is that you never stop learning and improving. I know these attempts at capturing motion are not perfect but I am happy with them and I love the compositions. Shots taken at #chateaudetiffauges.

土日にまたパリでデモがあると予告があったので、おうちに引きこもっていた週末。
ギョウザ作って食べたり、日曜日は習い事のあとに近くのクリスマスマーケットに行ったりして近場で過ごしました。
・
シャンゼリゼのイルミネーションを観に行きたいけど、週末はとてもじゃないけど近づけないので、平日に行くしかないかなぁ...。観光地周辺に住んでいる息子の学校のお友達は郊外のホテルに避難していたそう。本当にこわい。平日は普段通りに戻るから不思議なのだけど。
・
週末家で娘が「ねえねえ、デモって2つ意味があるんだよー知ってる?」と言ってくるので、はて?と思い、中身を聞いてみると、
1つは騒ぐデモでしょ〜
もう1つはお話するときに「でもさ〜」って言うじゃん、あれだよー!
とな!
・
発想が柔軟すぎるぜ。

クリスマスは平穏なパリに戻っていますように。

To my mind there is no better wine than a white burgundy. A yellow, rich, biscuity, deep Chardonnay, lightly chilled, preferably with some seafood but I’m not fussy, on its own is just fine too. This Meursault was delicious. Expensive (about 35E) so maybe not a day to day wine but certainly not a crazy price. The price for a bottle of wine here in France is so much more reasonable than the UK despite the shocking exchange rate - we pay so much tax on our wine. Would love to find an equivalent sub 20E to indulge in more often! #whiteburgundy #burgundy #meursault #frenchwine #chardonnay #bourgogne #france #laviefrancaise #lifeinfrance #wine #vin #grandvins #grandvinsdebourgogne #expatlife #instawine #instafood #foodie #delicious #ineednewwineglasses

My first week in a French community, the week of discovering, is over. It was a time I had a chance to leave and come back home (or a team could refuse to have me as an assistant, but it went well). According to the local tradition, I was left for a personal retreat in a small apartment in Agen city to think if I wanted to stay or no, despite my decision was quite obvious for me from the very beginning.

I remember my first days in Belfast, when I did not have any relevant experience. The absolutely unfamiliar ambience and job brought me in panic, I had no idea what should I do and how can I, how can all of us go through the difficult time. I went to visit my friend in Dublin (it was my second weekend), had a great time, but when I came back in the city I was just standing near the door thinking about my future. "Was it a right decision to come here? Or was it a mistake?". Maybe if in this very moment I had a chance to quit, I'd use it, I cannot say now, cause I was lost, lonely, and I had even noone to speak with (so my first honest dialogue happened with a ferryman somewhere in Irish sea). And now I am happy that I had no chance like that, because living in L'Arche Belfast gave me so much joy, so much love, so many happy moments, and most important it gave me people I love, gave me the force to continue my spiritual search after I was sure I had lost my way, gave me the purpose of existing and an understanding what did I really wanted to do. 
One person called me a brave girl, and I am moving forward in my tries to deserve this name.

Frankly, I was very pleased and impressed by this decision. While such fashion houses Hermès or Louis Vuitton, on the contrary, try to sell exotic leather, the house of high fashion Chanel refuses this profitable venture, and can lose quite a few.. despite the reasons that prompted Chanel to come to such a decision, I applaud them standing! Because exotic leather, leather in General and furs must remain on animals.. I'm not a vegetarian, but I try to go the right way..I try to limit the consumption of meat, gradually abandoning it. So far, it is very difficult to completely abandon the habit developed for decades, from childhood to eat meat. But I'm trying and I think this moment will come.💋

Monday means watching your colleagues spend time showing off how well they work rather than actually doing their work. ( 📷 by @patrickcolpron )

【delfまであと4日✏️】
周りの子と違って、落ちたら行きたい大学に行けない!っていう訳じゃない。完全に自己満足のための受験。
.
とはいえ3ヶ月間、自分がやってきたことしてきたことの証明が欲しい😭
.
新聞記事に出てくる単語は少しずつ覚えてきたけど、今日、「口(👄)」っていう単語が言えなかった。基礎すっ飛ばして次のレベル狙うとこういうことになる。

Andrew finally got to start his welding classes.  Our good friend Simone is a welder and generously offered to show him the ropes.
.
After only three classes this is his first project.  It even involved a field trip to the local scrap yard for materials.
.
He is a young man on a mission.  He started a kick starter campaign for an idea he has.  You can find it at http://kck.st/20ZF8qd Feather and Fur Farm.
.
And the last pick under our tree (yet to be decorated). I have to say, holding up a 3.2M (about 10 feet for those still using inches) tree is not easy but his design and final product does it with ease!!!
.
Well done.

Today Chateau De Reignac has their annual Christmas market, so of course we had to stop by for a visit! This is the third time we are attending the Christmas market so it has become a tradition for us. The chateau and surroundings are stunning, the staff is excellent and super friendly.
I really love the Christmas tree they had in the court yard this year, made from old vines.
We had pre-booked a three course lunch which was splendid, served with the chateaus wines.
During the day we got to taste:
- Chateau De Reignac, 2015.
- Grand Vin De Reignac, 2009 & 2015
- Balthvs, 2015
The chateau also launched a new product today, a beer, made with Sauvignon Gris. I’m not really a beer-lover but this was a great beer with lovely citrus notes.
At the Christmas market there was a large range of local produce. 
The champagne house, Roger Desbordes & fils, was here again this year! They offered us a lovely tasting of four of their champagnes, now we are all set for New Year’s Eve.
There was also an exhibit of amazing vintage cars in the court yard.

Bon Dimanche! 🍊We’ve had a house full of sickness all weekend (thank you Pre-K🤦🏼‍♀️) But luckily the babes are feeling better and I managed to adapt a few recipes from my new cookbook I’m loving called ‘French Country Cooking’ by @mimithor. A beet salad with red cabbage, red onion, pomegranate seeds, capers, parsley and chopped almonds. Delish! And Celery Root soup with Dijon mustard topped with crispy lardons. And a glass of Beaujolais Nouveau because, well, Sunday. 🍷 Happy for a fresh school week tomorrow, to get my self to the doctor, and to finally finish painting our soon to be bedroom upstairs! Hope everyone has a nice Sunday. #mimithorisson #celeryroot #beetsalad #sundaylunch #lightlunch #newcookbook
