Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 26.06.17

ON FRIDAY NIGHT, by the golden glow of hazy street lamps, we followed the strains of jazz to a clearing in the park to discover couples swing dancing. It was unexpected and utterly perfect for a midsummer’s night, and really rather romantic. On Saturday night, again in the park, we happened upon a full jazz concert, white garden chairs set around an outdoor stage in front of the water fountain filled with late-night revelers, some with children in tow, late-arriving tourists on bicycles and circles of friends on blankets on the grass, sharing a bottle of rosé. Summertime here is the very essence of joie de vivre and we’re lucky to be a part of it. This week’s links include fascinating facts about the Ritz Paris and the Gardens of Villa Ephrussi in Rothschild, How to Travel in Venice Like a Chic Ceramicist and much, much more …
