Indoor decorations - East and West

Due to the bad weather and heavy snowfall yesterday no post was ready for all of you visiting my blog early in the morning. We celebrated my sister´s birthday before she started her 16 days journey to Peru and Machu Picchu, and after a great dinner and good wine at Cafe Christiania, my posting had to be published late this Saturday morning. Hopefully Brit will send us some photos from South America for later postings.

Yesterday I published the decorations found outside on walls. The +20 cm wet snow yesterday made me go indoor, but there is always great motives for a camera at these walls too.
This one is from the Shanghai Municipal History Museum downstairs at Oriental Pearl Tower. The painting is remarkable, making different view dependent of which angle you choose when looking at it.But you do not need to go to the far east to find intriguing wall decorations. In a very good restaurant- La Roue d’Or in Brussels, Belgium, a great imitation or variation of Magritte´s Bowler paintings covers one of the walls. No better place for Moules Frites
In Berlin, Germany at Hackescher Markt (a cultural centre and famous for its nightlife) close to the Museumsinsel and Berliner Dom you may find a cafe with this painting at the wall.
But do not forget to look further up. The ceilings can also hide beautiful artworks like this in the music pavilion in Montecatini Terme, Italy. If you climb up to Montecatini Alto be not surprised to be served on plates like this.Have a nice weekend and bring your camera wherever you go on the weekend photo safari.

Som mine dager er said...

Dere er mye ute på reisefot. Når vi får enda litt mer tid og enda litt mer penger, så skal vi sannelig reise vi også, reiseglade som vi er.

Dadler og bacon er en uslåelig smaks-kombinasjon og det må du prøve. Jeg lar steinen være i, jeg da. Og spytter den ut til slutt.

Ivar var svæææært skeptisk første gangen jeg laget det. Nesten vegret seg for å smake. Nå har han mast siden om at vi må lage dem oftere ;-) Skikkelig snadder.

En fin helg ønskes dere.

Klem fra Marit
