mozambique's chinWe went to Amsterdam for the opening of "Imagining Mozambique" a travelling exhibition curated by Jaimie Kim at the Maxalot gallery. 15 illustrators and painters from all around the world were asked to produce an original painting/illustration. The prints will help to raise money for the ASEM foundation who helps the children and orphans. Florence is part of it. We spent the dinner with some of the artists, like Marcos Chin, a very nice man from NYC, who was born in Mozambique. We spent the night at a friend's house who's working at the ballet theatre and were happy to see the morning training class for the professional dancers, an amazing experience. We lost our way many times in Amsterdam, which is usual. I also missed the café de Toog.
