After receiving many reactions on my previous Pain Quotidien entry, and as a direct consequence, I had the pleasure of meeting an Italian Brussels based wonderful lady in the very place I wrote about. She is a young mother, author of http://mammachepaura.blogspot.be/ and moved to Belgium only a few months ago.
It was a first for me, to meet a fellow blogger in Brussels. We had a grand time. We discussed blogging, of course. I talked about how, when I entered the blogging world, the first blog I discovered was 'Carla loves photography' at http://carlacoulson.com/. I believe I googled the words 'blog', 'photography', 'Italy' and 'Paris', my very favorite things, and what came up was the blog of Carla, an Australian photographer living in Paris with her Italian husband, Francesco, whom she calls 'his gorgeousness'.
Encouraged by your multiple comments on the no-picture-policy, and even though I had intentionally left my camera at home, I had to take just one more picture and got my phone out of my purse.
