    ..."ok, I give you a guy in high heels, a poncho, plaid pants, jeans shirt and as undeniably important accessoire: a gourd. Something no good household can survive without these days it seems..."

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
