We had a lovely Fête de Noèl in the Cité. Lots of food and drink were brought in, as well as chairs from other studios so that we could all sit at the table that had been set up and filled the studio. As one person pointed out, we had at least one person from every continent in the room. The discussions were lively, the candles gave a nice ambiance, it was very festive. The red thermos was filled with vin chaud (hot wine.) This will be one our favorite memoires of our residency here.
