A vist to the Hotel de Behague with Mirela Sofronea, of the Romanian Cultural Institute in Paris

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The Mouth of Truth at Hotel de Behague

The theater in the Hotel de Behague

Dragos Olea  was showing the Rozalb de Mura collection around the corner from me at the Romanian Cultural Institute. I walk by it every day but aside from a Givenchy and a Boudicca fashion show, I've never really entered the space. The enchanting Mirela Sofronea took the time to show me this hidden treasure, the Hotel de Behague, and to give me a little history of the place.  Her passion and knowledge made the visit a pure joy.
