Finally on the road again!

Away for a while, without a computer, after being stuck at home for a long long time... Not sure if I'll be able to post anything. Anyway, this airplane is a perfect tool for some sunny holidays on a Greek beach, lol!
More tools here, on the CDP theme day page.

Culture behind bars

During lockdown in France, all shops dealing in culture, books, music, theaters, cinemas, etc, were closed. Oh, there was a way... Making some online billionaires even richer. Thankfully, I had enough books to last a long time.

Sans faire de vagues

Without making waves, by Gaëtan Gromer, another work at this year's The magnificent Industry exhibition. Life-sized sharks, with amputated fins, making a noise every time one shark is thrown back into the sea, mutilated. Shark fins are very popular in some countries... I wasn't the only one taking photos. Hello, colleague!
