Hello friends! Apologies about the long gap between posts; I’ve been in Europe.
I had an amazing time, tried to forget entirely about what’s been going on back here, and was pretty successful, really. Two weeks each in Paris, Lisbon and Berlin is a great way to distract yourself. I highly recommend it.
If you’re planning to go to Paris, I recommend visiting the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature (Museum of Hunting and Nature), among all of the other amazing sights. It’s a museum of taxidermied animals, a history of hunting which includes paintings by Desportes and Rubens, and also a collection of modern art (some pieces commissioned specifically for the museum) that are relevant to the subject.
But I see there’s been quite the circus going on back here while I’ve been away too.
