Huong Ngo in Belleville!

What a terrific 1 night visit from Huong Ngo. Today was breezy and cool and we went to the Hunting Museum - my 3rd visit! Each time I discover something else and today it was the temporary contemporary exhibit of a room with the walls covered with drawings and another room with half a boat and a mirror - shown later. Then we walked through Belleville - a funky neighborhood filled with Muslim, Asian + Afrian shops and people, food and graffiti, and a very cool flea market that ran blocks and blocks. Huong got a great black purse and some photographs and I got a great old photo album and photos. The lady we bought stuff from gave us each a ladybug pin! Here is Huong in front of a paint covered sign - a perfect circle......

 Antlers in the ceiling of the hunting museum.....

 Incredible Baklava shop. We each had a piece and it tasted like pistachio marzipan!
 Bears at hunting museum.....

 See these "beds" all over town lately. This one comes with a picture, a light and a toilet:
 and a power switch attached to the wall!
