About Mariel...

I'm Mariel, I am a guy of 33 years.
I live in the medieval city of Laon, in Picardy, France.
I am a historian and historian of arts, specialized in the artistic production during First World War. Before, i was History professor, and now I work in a museum of paintings : the Jeanne d'Aboville's museum. It is a very interesting place with rare paintings and a cool archeologic space.
(you can discover the museum on his website if you are interested about Art and History : )

I love my city and enjoy make visit of Laon with friendly people. :) I'm a Greeter (= I do original touristic visits for free). You can discover my greet here :

I live in a old apartment from downtown, in an old house in the seventeenth century, with my boyfriend.
We have a dog, a rescue spanish greyhound (a galgo) of 11 years old. His name is Eole. We have too a 3 years old rabbit called Rambo, it is a rescue pet too.

I like reading and writing. I read lot of style of novels but i don't like thriller. I love american litterature and books that describe the lives of ordinary people. I write in different style too, if you read french you can go read my short stories and poesies here :

I listen music especially french rock, my favorite artists are french because i like understand what i hear : Indochine (a rockband), Miossec and Jean-Louis Murat.

I like also make long walk with my dog and my boyfriend in the touristic places of my area. I like to play video-games or stay hours and hours front of my pc. :D

But I like too :
- cards of the serie "greetings from" on Postallove
- folkloric hats :D
- communist symbols (not only russian, I'm interested by all communists countries), or pics of communist period
- cowboys or far-west cards
- dogs ( no cats! :P ), especially greyhound !
- expressionist painters
- cool things about Middle Age ( castles, knights...)
- Gothic monuments
- pics of musicians
