Christmas Markets!

This weekend I perused the stalls at the Christmas Market, Marché de Noël, at Place Bl-IMG_2526Massena in Nice with Jen. This market is amazing. People come from all over the world to experience Christmas markets in France and other parts of Europe. The crafts-goods-merchandise are so beautiful, the atmosphere is convivial and the scene is spectacular. The artisans are set up in cabin-style storefronts and there is an ice skating rink set up, a Ferris wheel, and of course lots of food – I actually ate churros for the first time during this outing.  I was so happy to see that the guy who made the metal sculpture works I’d admired on an earlier visit to Cannes had a stall (his sculptures are amazing!).

Mid-week Marthe, Alex and some others met up at a pub to enjoy some karaoke night performances. It was all about letting go and having fun. It was a blast.
