Looking for a long lost pen pal in Dijon

by kenyneo

Dear VT,

This is perhaps the strangest request I have posted here. While clearing some of my old stuff , I chanced upon some letters from a penpal from Dijon that I lost touch with after I moved to Saudi Arabia for work. I have his name and can even find it in the internet, he is teaching in the Gaston-Roupnel College in Dijon. But I dont really know how to contact him . Would appreciate if anyone from Dijon can help me find his email address. Thank you

His name is - Karim Andréys-Kéroui

Thank you very much

Kenny

It is easy to find his address in the white pages and see where he lives in Dijon and then contact him by mail first. I'm not sure I can give you his address here but it is easy to find. http://www.pagesjaunes.fr/pb.cgi?

Travel Tips for Dijon

Walking in the sun

by barryg23

It wasn't a very pleasant experience at the time, but looking back on it now I have fond memories of walking all the way from the station, on one side of town, to Place de la Republique on the Eastern side. It doesn't sound too bad, though we were carrying rather heavy backpacks in 30 degree heat.

After about 15 minutes walk and numerous "I think we're nearly there" on my part we finally made it to Place Darcy - halfway to where we wanted to be. And those backpacks kept getting heavier and heavier......

If you don't speak French, at least say Bon Jour. The French are lovely people who get a bad rap from American's. If you make an effort to speak French, they will warm up to you. Also, don't slam the wine. At least, not when they're looking!

Je n'ai pas eu beaucoup de temps, mais je suis passé tout de même chez un viticulteur !
La famille Olivier-Gard, au village de Concoeur et Corboin, cultive 5 hectares de vigne pour y produire son vin dans le respect de la qualité et la tradition.
Elle nous propose de l'Aligoté, du Hautes Côtes De Nuits Blanc, du Hautes Côtes de Nuits Rouge de cuvées tradition et de garde. Et des produits maisons comme les sirops de fruits rouges d'une exceptionnelle beauté de goût !
Vous y trouverez aussi un gîte pour vous y reposer...

"Retable de la Crucifixion" - Painter Broederlam.

by breughel

Large altarpieces were made by a wood sculptor for the interior part and a painter for the exterior panels and the gild.
I couldn't see the exterior panels of the "Retable of Crucifixion" painted by Broederlam as the triptych is open showing the carved inside part from sculptor de Baerze.
Normally in churches triptychs are shown closed, displaying the paintings, but opened on feast days.
The Flemish painter Melchior Broederlam painted scenes of Christ's childhood The Annunciation and The Visitation on the left panel; on the right, The Presentation of Christ and The Flight into Egypt alternating inside and outside scenes. He also gilded the sculptures carved by de Baerze.
Broederlam (born in Ypres?) is considered as a forerunner of the Flemish Primitives like Jan van Eyck or Robert Campin. He painted (between 1381 and 1410) for the count of Flanders Louis de Maele and then for the duke of Burgundy Philip the Bold.
These very fine painted outer panels are the only ones we know from him.

===============================

Les grands retables étaient réalisés d'une part par un sculpteur, d'autre part par un peintre et doreur.
Je n'ai pas pu voir les volets peints par Broederlam puisque le retable était ouvert montrant les sculptures réalisées par de Baerze. Anciennement les retables n'étaient ouverts qu'aux jours de fêtes.
Le peintre flamand Melchior Broederlam a peint les scènes de l'enfance du Christ l'"Annonciation" et la "Visitation" d'un côté, la "Présentation au Temple" et la "Fuite en Egypte" avec une alternance de scènes d'intérieur et d'extérieur. Il a aussi effectué la dorure des sculptures.
Broederlam (né à Ypres?) est considéré comme un précurseur des grands primitifs flamands comme Jan Van Eyck ou Robert Campin. Il était le peintre attitré du comte de Flandre Louis de Maele et ensuite du duc de Bourgogne Philipe le Hardi entre 1381 et 1410. Ces deux volets sont les seules œuvres que l'on connaisse de lui aujourd'hui dans le monde entier. Il a réalisé un travail très raffiné.

A delightful respite

"Good decision"

We went to Dijon to cruise the Burgundy Canal in the barge Litote. The cruise ended Friday morning, and our plane back to the states did not leave until Monday. So we decided in advance to spend Friday and Saturday in Dijon. It was a good decision. I have seen another tourist label Dijon a "mini Paris," and I agree with that assessment. In a way, it is Paris without the crowds.
The Dijon area no longer grows the famous mustard that bears its name. Mustard has been replaced by rape, a plant of the cabbage family with bright yellow flowers, that produces a very popular oil. The mustard factories are still in business in the Dijon, but now get their feedstock from Germany, according to our tour guide, who is a native of the area.
Dijon has a multitude of architecture to ponder. In one block, there is 17th, 15th and 13th Century structures standing side-by-side. An oddity are buildings that were orginally painted using ox blood. There is at least one notable example in Dijon. Ox blood is no longer used, but the owners have to use a special paint that has been approved because it appears to be ox blood.
There is a wonderful market, a very good botanical garden and numerous other sites to keep one occupied.
The people are very friendly. In Paris, we found that each restraurant had at least one person on the staff who spoke English. In Dijon, most restaurants and pubs had no one who spoke English. My French is not the best, but we were able to make do quite well.

"Soup to nuts"

The market in Dijon.

"Notre Dame"

Notre Dame is a 13th Century Gothic structure adorned by a host of gargoyles on the front.
On an exterior wall at the side of Notre Dame an owl has been carved into the stone. It is supposedly a 700-year-old tradition that if you rub the owl, which is the symbol of Dijon, you will have good luck.
