Well, I'm roasting a chicken right now,

so the flat smells like garlic and onions and rosemary and reminds me of home. It's a lazy Sunday morning - puttering around, cooking, doing a bit of work, and FINALLY posting a new blog entry. This week has been all over the place, but now I've got a moment to sit and post!
Yesterday I went to Trocadéro to check out an exposition on colors and the body. It was basically an expo that explored tattoos, piercings, clothing, tanning, make-up... anything that had to do with putting color on the body in some form. It was pretty cool, and I think that the layout of the expo was the best part:
A white tent, completely black inside, with glowing white bodies, each with one colored arm. There was lots of glowing neon in the room, and I was diggin' it!

Then some very cool pics from the Nivea's contribution:

Trocadéro is such an impressive space as well. This was my first time visiting the plaza, and of course I was blown away by the views of Paris and the Eiffel Tower! There are also some fun little temporary sculptures:

What I loved even more about the plaza, though, was the use of the space. There are skateboarders, rollerbladers, breakdancers, tourists, men selling key chains, crazy kids doing this:

It sort of reminded me of the MACBA in Barcelona. Wide open pavilions are just begging skateboarders, BMXers, and rollerbladers to come out and play.
