The way

As a former work zombie, I couldn't agree more... Destroy your work zombiness, and start again.

Hidden

Somewhere in the Petite France area, in the old town, there is this hidden courtyard, with a strange tree. Not sure what it is about.

Under construction

A brand new gigantic mural, here in Strasbourg, in the Esplanade area. Painted over the dull front of a student home. A close up, to appreciate the size of it:

Berlin HBf

Waiting for the S-Bahn, aka metro, at Berlin central station, last December. No ballet in Spandau for me though.:-)

Stork reintroduction center

We used to have many storks here, but in 1972, the number was down to only 5 couples. Thanks to this center and to several charities, there are now approximately 750 couples in Alsace, about 60 of them in the Orangerie park, next to the Council of Europe.

Just checking

In most European countries, it is forbidden to use your cell phone whilst driving. So I guess this... driver is not doing anything illegal. Checking his phone whilst waiting for clients, in Mdine, Malta

France Bleu Alsace

Our regional  bilingual (French and Alsatian) radio station. Well, we have many more radio stations here, not even counting the German and Swiss ones (hello, neighbors!) . But this one is actually in one of 2 world heritage sites, the Neustadt, the other one is the Grande Ile, the old city center

Georges's guitar

Not a music shop, contrarily to what I first thought, whilst  walking through the streets of Montmartre 2 or 3 weeks ago. Georges Brassens had a guitar like this, if I remember well.

The place to be?

Well, maybe indoors, as the weather is absolutely miserable. A hot coffee for me, please! And one of your lovely tartines.

Alsace go bragh!

I've never been able to see any leprechaun during my years in Ireland (Eireann go bragh!), I might have looked in the wrong places... Pursuing my research behind this crane near my house here, in my Strasbourg suburb. If I suddenly stop blogging, this will indicate that I found the much famed pot of gold, and that I moved to the Seychelles, or so.

I'll keep you posted.:-)

Weekend in black and white

Gold

A panorama view of the interior of the St john's co-cathedral in Valletta. The main cathedral, San Pawl, is in Mdina, & few km away. San Pawl, Saint Paul, as the story goes, was shipwrecked in Malta (in St Paul's Bay). He founded the first christian in Malta, around 60 AD.
I've only seen more gold in some Bavarian rococo churches. I'm equally amazed and deeply dismayed by so much ostentation wealth...10 euros to see it...
