Happy Birthday Marco de Rivera and our memory lane…

Dear Shaded Viewers,

My friend in the “hood” celebrates his birthday today. For the past years we always celebrate with lunch at my favourite tea room, les Deux Abeilles. We’ve spent time in Cannes, Bulgaria, Paris, UK and attended many exhibitions, museums, fashion, art, film…over the years and since the COVID 19 started we take our weekly walks you’ve seen on IG Reels. Here are but a few memories.
