I’m still working on Spanish and then plan to revisit Russian, but Japanese is in my future.  The past few weeks, I have compiled the resources I’d like to use, consulted with fellow learners and I feel just about ready...

Royal Saltworks in Arc-et-Senans, France

In the east of France lies an architectural complex known as Saline Royale or the Royal Saltworks. This project, conceived by Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, was not only built to accommodate large-scale salt production but as an aesthetic masterpiece. Named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1982, the Royal Saltworks have since been restored and opened to the public. There are currently three main exhibits available: the Stories of...
