montmartre street

picasso wannabes at montmartre..hehe

modern day picasso waiting for someone to draw...haha ...a visit to paris without taking the funiculaire train up the montmartre, would utterly be incomplete..hehe

again, another picasso trying to finish his monumental oil painting..hehe

if you like history, don't forget Versailles, where the refinement and eclecticism of Marie-Antoinette, emphasises her way of living and freedom of thought that was inspired by enlightenment theories (unlike templer's conspiracy theories at rennes de chateau which is further way at the pyranees...hehe). No wonder eventually both she and King Louis XVI was beheaded ..hmmmm

my 2nd and final country report/research paper at the global meeting...

sharing with fellow RCAR members (26 insurance-backed research centres from 19 countries) our efforts at eradicatiing cut&joint vehicles in malaysia...

MRC is a member of the international P-Safe committee...

where the week-long meeting is being held in Paris, the Groupama HQ, France's largest insurer

Earnest Hemingway (the famous novelist) joint at REIMS, champagne district, about 2 hours out of Paris on the way to Brussels, Prague, Budapest..

On wednesdays, the children in France don't go to schools. Its their day out visiting agricultural exhibits in town. France is, like other european nations, a predominantly agrarian society and the fabric of their social and economic activity is still very much cooperative-based...industrial sector aside..

the new secretary-general of RCAR, Wilf Bedard of Canada, in deep thought during proceedings...
