We were told that our new place would be apartments with private sleeping quarters. You can imagine our disappointment when we walked into this (my desk on the right). My dorm room had more storage space, though we do have a bathroom and a stove!
During my second visit to the Institute du Monde d'Arabe, I realized one of the panels were open and of course I had to touch it. This building is by Jean Nouvel, the architect I will be working for in a week. I would not mind if they made me design something like this for three months. Actually, I would love that.
After lunch I decided to grab a little something. Tartelette Frais....delicious. Just ahead of us there is the Cimetiere Montparnasse. The second most famous cemetery in Paris. It includes the graves of Man Ray, Brancusi, and André Citroën.
Picnic in Parc des Buttes Chaumont which we were invited to by our incredibly nice French friends, Karine and Romain. The typically french 7 hour picnic in the park with wine and cheese was followed by, the seemingly very american, Rock Band on XBOX 360 at their apartment.
