Well, dear reader—the few of you left—we are now back on Paros enjoying the slow pace of digging out from under the back log of work. Here we take a break by gazing out to sea or a short walk through the village. In Prague our days were filled with hopping on a tram or Metro to some site, museum or shopping centre and we took our breaks in art nouveau coffee shops.
In fact we were so busy that my Prague blog is quite empty. But Karin did quite a few photo journals that I eventually hope to include there. So if you are interested in Prague check our CzechMates in another month or so or just watch here for a bulletin.
On Paros the sign of a new year beginning is not the Easter clean-up, which starts in earnest next week, rather it is the Art Appreciation series by IPAC—International Paros Art Circle. I have written about this before. To find these just search IPAC in the search bar at the top of the page.
Here is this year’s schedule:
This spring there will be a new series of Round Table Talks,
each one having a different speaker and theme.
They will start at 7.30 pm with a 40minute lead-in Talk
followed by discussion.
We hope you will be able to attend these interesting evenings, with lively conversation and discussion.
There will be cheese and wine to follow.
There is no charge and you do not have to be a member of IPAC,
just someone who enjoys art, creating it – or both.
The Talks and discussion will be in English.
