The sign board

-What are you painting Loedi?
-Our own sign board !
-Wow… so cool ! Do you think they’ll let us hang it in the museum with all the other signs in Paris?
-I don’t think so, but anyway… it doesn’t belong in a museum, at least not for the moment.
-Where then?
-At the entrance of our own workshop of course!
-Our workshop? But we don’t have one Loedi !
-Well… this sign board is the first step in the construction of our own workshop and soon it will be hung there!
-Wow… so cool ! I can’t wait…
-Me too Choco… me too…

A street lamp in the night

The moon barely lit up the cold winter night and the wind gusts were icy.

Loedi trudged through the sleeping city, and only the sound of his footsteps on the cobblestones disturbed the silence of the night.

In the darkness, his childish fear of the monsters that might be hiding there resurfaced.

Loedi shivered and quickened her pace.

“City of light…. where are you?”

Paris answered her indirectly with one of its majestic street lamps, which she placed in her path.

Loedi immediately climbed up and slipped into the glass interior.

There, sheltered from the wind, she was able to light a candle whose glowing flame instantly dispelled all darkness.

The lamp post, thus illuminated, reminded Loedi that it would be her protector until dawn, but above all that it was forever the proud guarantor of the City of Light.

Loedi and the coco’s birds

Do you know the coco’s birds? No ? Have you never seen one in the sky of Paris ?

What a pity… they are so incredible!

Let me explain how Loedi does it. If you follow these tips…. maybe you will see them one day!

First, you should know that coco’s birds hate cold and bad weather. In Paris… this limits the opportunities, but don’t despair: the best time of the year is in July and August, during those two to three weeks of heat wave, when we dream of a cocktail on a beach surrounded by coconut trees… and we have nothing else but our dear Haussmann buildings.

Secondly, to optimise your chances, you should know that coco’s birds are great gourmets: they love fruit of all colours, preferably ripe. They can eat a lot in no time! If you want to have the chance to see them up close, do like Loedi and bait them with a huge basket of fruit!

Third and last important point, coco’s birds have only one leg and two very large wings. They are therefore not very agile and cannot land anywhere without damaging their delicate wings. To make them want to land next to you, add some long and stable poles near the fruit basket to give them an ideal perch. Like Loedi, you can also opt for real coconut trunks, but this is a little more difficult to set up.

Now that you know everything… think of climbing on the roofs of Paris next summer and discovering the coco’s birds!

A city overlooking the ocean…

This city looks familiar to me… where are we ?

Let’s take sometime overthere… shall we ?

This pontoon going towards the ocean seems to be the spot for a romantic date. Maybe he is a sailor with his ladylove ?

And this boat sailing the ocean… what is it going to fish ? Where is it going ?

I would love to drink a coffee on this roof top, the view might be great. Would you join me ?

Later we could get some fruits and vegetables from this greengrocer in the adjacent street…

Than we would walk along the sea cliffs before climbing up the big tower which reminds me of another one…

Isn’t it Saint James on the top ? Holding his pilgrim’s rod and wearing his cape, his eyes fixed on the ocean…

There would be so many others things to say about this city…. would you agree to stay some more ?

Artist studio with view on the Seine river !

Would you like to live in an artist studio with a beautiful view on the Seine in Paris ?

In Middle-Age, the parisian briges were built and inhabited… till the beginning of 19th century !

Just imagine how those briges would look like nowadays if their were still “capped” with those buildings ? Would you enjoy living there ?
