Visiting the Cité Nationale de l’Histoire de l’Immigration - Palais de la Porte!

Dear Expats,

Here comes yet another great opportunity for us to go and discover something new in this city of lights. After observing our hosts (French people) debating throughout March and April on different topics including the hottest one of them (immigration) and voting for the new president, I thought it would be a good idea to understand how this country has influenced the world and how it has been influenced through Immigration.

This Sunday, we’re going to the Cité Nationale de l’Histoire de l’Immigration - Palais de la Porte Dorée.

This cultural center traces two centuries of immigration in France. "Compass", the permanent exhibition, talks about the departure, the border, habitat, exclusion, work, mutual enrichment of cultures. The pictures, movies and many objects tell it all.

We’ll meet in front of the museum and get in together. It would be nicer to picnic after our tour in the museum; if the weather gets nice (the weather forecast isn’t very nice on Sunday afternoon so far). For now, let’s just say we’ll have a drink after the visit.

    I was not so impressed by the exhibition but I'm really glad I got to see the Art Deco furniture and frescoes in this museum. Thanks for thinking of it.

    Hey Peter, never mind...You can either put on your jeans or Shorts&polo. I think most of us will be dressed up the same way. So see you tomorrow.
