Think you know the town you live in pretty well? Does walking the same path become a habit, part of a routine you don’t really have to think about? Put simply, does the thought of hanging around your own town feel somewhat blah?
This is especially true for the Ninja Turtle, who literally runs circles around Metz. So when GodzillaPin proposed a Sunday afternoon walk, her first thought was, why? She’s going to see the same thing on her long run on Monday anyway.
Not so. Turns out GodzillaPin was a man with a plan.
The Parcours d’Artistes is essentially a series of exhibitions scattered around town, and armed with a map, one wanders around hunting out the venues of choice. The art pieces were all for sale, and the venues they were exhibited in varied locations, from private homes! to cafes, art galleries to former churches.
It was a lovely mix of the visual arts, including but not limited to:
It was a lovely way to pass the afternoon, but after 3 hours of walking around and climbing at least two dozen flights of stairs, GodzillaPin’s knee started causing him grief and they decided to call it a day. As for the Ninja Turtle, she’s feeling a lot less blasé about the town they live in. In fact, there is beauty right before one’s eyes, and creativity lurking in every corner. It’s simply a matter of looking a little closer.
