The Frozen Sailor Minute - July

As the sun arises¬†worryingly hot this summer, Europe gradually opens its doors. France has moved swiftly since lockdown ended in May. Summer will clearly see crowds going to close-to-home destinations, including your loyal writer,¬†bien s√Ľr.

Now, what about a green summer ? first of all, we need green actions as consumers, companies, family members. This world deserves our quickest and generous attention : Earth is what we all have in common. Let's not forget it. Second, I want to share with you today one of my green travel discoveries from Arcachon (South West France) : more info in the Art prints below.

Finally, as a reminder of travel postal cards when travelling, I posted one of Bassin d'Arcachon in the picture above...

Happy reading and heathy summer.

 

Culture at a glance

  • Barcelone opera house reopened¬†at the end of June with a concert for 2292 ... plants, not audiences. This unusual event in Gran Teatre del Liceu was meant as a reflection of Spain's 3-month lockdown on human activity.

  • The most expensive art work¬†as I write this email is Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi : $ 450.3 Million. It is one of only 20 works created by Da Vinci belonging to a private collection.

  • Did you say Dutch Golde Age ?¬†For the 1st time in Spain, the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid dedicates an exhibition to Rembrandt as a portraitist. Exhibition extended until Aug 30th.

  • Sabbia - Fine Art Print¬†(first picture below) : Arcachon with only 11 000 inhabitants, offers never-ending beaches, some of them showing appealing¬†green tones. By having a small talk with locals and being curious, those beaches can be reachable on a weekend, as a summer treasure for a kid. In some way, they are hidden from mass crowds who come to this town under the sun.¬†Link here

  • Rouge Indien - Fine Art Print¬†(second picture) : New Delhi is a sprawling megalopolis, difficult to roam for newcomers. It also shows attractive palaces and fortresses from the XVII century Moghul dynasties. The Rouge Indien (or Indian Red) is a reminder of the unique red sandstone in which its old buildings have been built from.¬†Link here.
