|Jacques Brel grafitti?|
|Justices Suzanne Baer and Brenda Hale at the wrap-up|
I was there for a really excellent conference on gender and judging. Marie-Claire and I did our presentation we did was in french. Yikes! If you end up really keen, or wanting to hear what happens when I try my french, you can listen to the podcast here: (you will get to hear the beginning where my mike for the translators was too close and all they could hear was my heavy breathing! :-))
|Blue skies above Notre-Dame au Sablon|
|the Musee des beaux-arts! (Magritte next door)|
Was delighted that I got to see it during one of the very rare moments of blue sky during the visit.
Marie-Claire and I spent a fabulous hour in the Magritte Museum (attached to the Musee des Beaux-Arts.
I don't remember the Magritte Museum being there back in the 80s...).
After that, we had the chance to catch up with Francoise Tulkens (amazing jurist, on the european court of human rights) and get a tour of the Royal Academy for Science and the Arts.
|Our 'magritte-esque' contemplation of Magritte|
It was fun getting to see her place post kitchen-reno (which is where she was during the last visit... the ill-fated christmas catastrophes visit! http://carter-johnson.blogspot.ca/2012/01/losing-it-in-belgium-or-real-truth-of.html)
