Goodbye for now

Due to big changes in my personal life, some good, some not so good, I won't be able to carry on blogging regularly for a few months, Back at the end of march, I think. Or this weekend.

Siberian day out!

I almost froze solid today. Being still used to more southern temperatures, minus 4 C, wind chill factor minus 11 C, despite of the sun,.. Very hard!
Anyway, I went to the lovely german city of Heidelberg, 140 km away. You get different kinds of mulled wines here, exactly what I needed!

Place of music and dance

Aka Cité de la musique et de la danse, the most musical building in town, musicians (and I suppose dancers) rehearsing at all hours. Also a concert place, a few hundred meters from the city center.

Holy cow!

One of the statues stored inside the old Vauban fortification. Leftovers from the (catholic!!!)
cathedral, I believe.

Printemps: french for springtime. What used to be a haberdasher shop, sells now clothes and leather goods, only the most expensive brands. Behind all the metal and glass, is a brick building. In front, the main tramway hub in town

A 2-parter...

Oops, a bit missing. Here it is:

...from the small petting farm in the Orangerie park, place I've been visiting now and then for the last 50 years. Memories!

Don't go me on the ghost!

Our dear neighbors on the other side of old father Rhine, 3 miles or 5 km from here, have a way with words... Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about Goethe or Schiller, oh no! I'm talking about those everyday expressions... translated in English, word for word.
Peace, joy and eggcake to you, my friends! LOL!
