It's been really a while without posting snapshots here. Laziness? Lack of time? Probably a bit of both.
Well well well... I was at the UN headquarters in NYC a couple of weeks ago, and I saw, no... not saw... pardon me... I had the chance to ADMIRE the wonderful work of Anne Paq in Palestine. Apart from the humanist and political messages her pictures convey, I was just thrilled by the beauty of her work.
And it just gave me back the will to come back more often to photography, to post mine... therefore a big thank you to Anne :-)

Alfama neighborhood, Lisbon, Portugal, July 2006.

Tramway line #28, slowing down while an old lady walks by the railway.
Few cities still have such thrilling souls.

Suite aux grêves des techniciens au sol (il n'y a pas qu'en France que ça manifeste), l'aéroport de Barcelone, El Prat de Llobregat, était assiégé en continu par les foules la dernière semaine de Juillet.

Petite balade en bateau-mouche sur le Danube, un petit hors bord sur notre sillage.
Le bruit du moteur rompait un peu le charme.

Budapest, August 2, 2006

L'élégant Café Gerbeaud, ou Petit Gerbeaud, situé sur Pest, est à Budapest ce que le Café de Flore ou les Deux Magots sont à Paris. Il se trouve sur Vaci utca at Vörösmarty tér.
Fondé en 1858, il était l'un des salons de thé les plus connus d'Europe. La Haute Société avait coutume de s'y rendre pour déjeuner, prendre le thé ou se sustenter de pâtisseries après le théàtre.

Pour la petite histoire, Henri Kugler l'avait ouvert un premier temps sur la place József Nádor; ce n'est qu'en 1870 qu'il fut déplacé sur la place Vörösmarty. D'où vient le nom de Gerbeaud? En 1882, Henri Kugler rencontre Emille Gerbeaud à Paris en en fait son associé. Ce dernier devient célèbre par ses créations gourmandes, reçut la légion d'honneur et fut même membre du jury de l'exposition universelle de Paris de 1900.
C'est Henri Darilek qui se chargea du design des lieux en 1910 sous la forme que l'on connaît encore aujourd'hui: bois noble, marbre, cuivres, plafond en plâtre rococo de style Louis XIV...
Racheté en 1995 par Erwin Müller, il a été restauré en 1997 pour retrouver sa superbe du début du 20ème siècle.
La qualité du marbre et la beauté des lustres sautent aux yeux quand on pénètre les lieux.
C'est un très agréable café littéraire, qui fait également office de restaurant, de pub, de chocolaterie et de viennoiserie.
Les pâtissseries y sont très goûteuses.

A essayer: le chocolat viennois, épais mais délicieux.
