AUjourd’hui, je suis allée au musée Guimet dans le 16ème arrondissement de Paris. C’est un musée spécialisé dans l’art asiatique. En ce moment, il y a une exposition sur Hokusai qui s’arrêtera le 7 janvier, et une autre sur le thé, qui s’arrêtera le 28 janvier.

Today I went to an exhibition at the Guimet museum, which is located in the 16th district of Paris. It is a museum specialised about Asia. There is an exhibition about Hokusai, which is stopping in January, 7th, and another one about tea, which stops in January, 28th.

C’était une expo très intéressante! Il y a un partenariat avec la marque Le Palais des Thés, donc au début de l’expo, vous pouvez sentir tous leurs thés qui sont rangés par types (fruités, épicés…). La marque a aussi créé un thé spécifiquement pour le musée, il est fait avec des bleuets (afin de rappeler le bleu Guimet), thé vert, fleur de cerisier et yuzu.

It was a very interesting exhibit! There is a partnership with the brand Le Palais des Thés, so at the beginning you can smell all their teas that are ranked by kinds (fruity, spicy…). The brand also created a special Guimet tea for the museum. It is made with cornflower (to remind the Guimet blue colour), green tea, cherry flowers and yuzu.

Il y avait aussi une oeuvre d’art de Ai Wei Wei qui était une tonne de thé.

Le musée en lui-même et son magasin sont aussi très bien ! Dans la zone du Cambodge, il y a beaucoup de sulptures provenant d’Angkor qui ne devraient pas être là, mais c’était malgré tout sympa de les revoir !

The museum in itself is very nice and its shop too! In the Cambodian area there are a lot of sculptures from Angkor that shouldn’t be here, but it was nice seeing them once again!

    This design is spectacular! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
