My visit to my Dear Gabrielle
She’s not resting in Paris France as you may think .Not in a glamorous Center of World Fashion at all either.
Gabrielle Coco Chanel, is resting in a very modest city instead, she’s in Switzerland, amongst the Alps and the Stars above.
One of the things that made me upset was to see that the flowers in front of the tomb that used to have the double C didn’t during my visit. I was really sad and surprised.
Her tomb is decorated with five lions representing her favourite number and her astrological sign and lot’s of white flowes.
