Back in Lyon, staying with my friend, I tried to keep up with my daily walk. There are the remains of a Roman amphitheatre near her house.

The site is open to the public. There's a great Greco-Roman Museum next door.

In my spare time I’ve been working on writing out patterns for some of the hundreds of sprang lace motifs that I saw in Brussels.

I work out the lace pattern using graph paper and then make a sample to check to see that I've got it correctly.

I taught a finger weaving class in TheHague.

Everyone mastered the basic technique. Some were working on the arrowhead pattern before the end of the day.

My host in TheHague pointed out some flocks of birds, all bright green. It seems that escapee parakeets have adopted certain parks in TheHague as home.
