A massive breakfast buffet. Feeling the Christmas vibe.
An early morning; we’re making a field trip today. Mark’s greatuncle got killed during the war and he’s been buried at the Lorraine American Cemetery and Memorial in Saint-Avold.
A breathtaking place.
Since his whole family lives in the US, it’s the first time anyone visited his grave. A precious moment and I felt privileged to be there with him.
Cosy talks with my van-buddy for the day, Marshall, pictures of snowy Mineapolis, passing a heartbreaking carcrash that left us all speechless for a long time and made my ‘spider’-radar a little more active than usual.
Arriving at La Cartonnerie in Reims, delicious food and yummy presents.
The room was beautiful but boomy.
I hid in a silent corner where I got a phonecall from Kirsten from StudioBrussel, one of Belgians national radios. If you understand Dutch, or feel like listening anyway, it’s here:
Nona has been joining us on stage for a few shows already, singing along on Sailorboy and tonight we got invited to share the stage with them for In Your Dreams. (I told you about rehearsing a little dance routine in secret.. Well, In Your Dreams was the song we’d been practising on!)
So we patiently waited..
And danced our ass off!
We had our picture taken by the in-house photographer, I sold out on one of my necklaces and the promoter invited us for some local champagne to celebrate the night.
Arriving at the B&B hotel, for a minute Benne and I thought we had some kind of supersuite, since we had to pass secret doors with a code and stuff, but no. We got another small, greyish-brown room. B&B, you can try to lighten up the place a bit.. A different colour of sheets could do a lot.
I missed Barthotel, with the royal pillows, now that was cosy (and kitch).
No hotelroomparty since it was 2:30 and we had a lobbycall in a few hours.
