Notre Dame

I ventured into the cathedral for the first time in ages. Unusually, there were no long queues, for once.

Hello, mate!

A temporary construct at the cathedral. Ideal for a nap, or for a good book.

... and a bottle of rum!

Very old photo, 14-16 years ago, in  Sitges, near Barcelona. This is a symbol for a company founded in Cuba in 1862, by Señor Facundo Bacardi Masso, born in Sitges in 1814. Try guessing the brand...lol

Cheers!

Summer in the city

28 degrees C, 83 F as I write this on Saturday afternoon. Ice cream weather!

My trusty main camera died, RIP. So back to my 12 years old Canon DSLR, by far not a sharp as my poor Leica. New camera coming soon.

Not my car!

I went to a pop culture exhibition this weekend. Saw this car in a dark corner... No bats around.

A replica of the batmobile, btw.

Wanderlust

My dream house, on a small Portuguese island, Armona. The urge to travel is upon me! Preferably to some place I haven't been before. Well, we'll see where it will take me. Maybe Vietnam.

s'Kaafhüs

The former mooring places on the 1358 AD custom house. Boats on the Rhine had to declare their goods, tobacco, wine, salt. A custom house with an inn, since 1401 AD for centuries, a market later, a trendy restaurant nowadays.

A blast from the past

Meeting Janis, the four boys from Liverpool, Zagor, the Floyd, Asterix and Obelix in Belgrade, 18 months ago. I really need to go back to the Balkans, so much still to see there! And it's relatively cheap, which is good for my small pension.
