I met one of my friends in London and we started walking around the city: from Covent Garden to Leicester Square in and out of restaurants, bookstores, cafes, pubs… We had lunch at the “Wild Food Cafe” that a friend had suggested.
And it has been a beautiful surprise: to begin with, the colours of the buildings and the tiny courtyard. And then, the place in itself. Friendly people, and very tasty food raw-centric, vegan, vegetarian. Don’t ask me for any explanations please, go to their web site. I am a carnivore also, so not the best person to inform you on the differences. The most essential thing: it is tasty, and I liked being there.
Here is what one of the founders, Aiste, says: “I am very excited to be a part of the plant-based revolution happening globally and I’m committed to sharing Wild Food Café’s core values with the world and co-creating a community of wellbeing superheroes!”
I was going to call it a day, after having woke up at 5.30, been to the Platform, the artistic event Matrix I belong to… I put some posters for the next exhibition I prepare on Thursday, and had a few business meetings.
It felt so much better to have texted B, to have told him that I like him as a person, regardless of what this might mean for the future. It is as if a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
So, when I came back home, all I wanted was to relax and maybe talk to some friends. K who had just come back to Paris called and we agreed to meet for a drink. She is going to a job interview tomorrow and probably needed some moral support.
We were to meet somewhere in the center of Paris. But, as I was walking towards our meeting point, I noticed an event was taking place in a beautiful Bath store. “B’Bath” offers the concept of “Bath in motion”, associated to well-being. We were welcome for a cocktail, and admired the way a bath can bring us a feeling of harmony, while drinking wine and tasting strawberries in an envelope of dark chocolate.
I was impressed to observe the way a girl was hitting on a guy : she was touching his arm several times just a few seconds after they had met. I am usually shy, so I wondered if this kind of approach is effective. A little bit later, I saw him again by himself.
I don’t know if I could generalize and say that men -in Paris- don’t like women to take an initiative. I doubt that. It is probably that touching someone right away goes a bit too far.
And I am not sure this is enough to create a connexion.
I include the link to the exhibition, in order to thank them for the nice cocktail.
