We Alsatians

We Alsatians are officially french. But... We have our own culture, language (taught even in university), music, food, which has almost nothing to do with things french. Therefore, we have our very own alsatian museum, interesting place which shows how different we are from the frenchies.
But... We are french!

Ok, folks, I'll be moving to a new place this weekend. As switching from cable to fibre seems to be arduous, no internet for 2 weeks or so. So, I wont be posting, actually a welcome break, as I need to spend more time at other things. C ya asap!

Petite France

A 15th century house in the Petite France area. Yep, that's over 700 years old.We have a pharmacy, open since ...1268AD! Still standing, but it is now the culture bureau, since 2000.
Will your house still stand in, let's say, 6 or 700 years?

Better than pizza delivery, or kebab, burger, and so on; port wine delivery!
OK, this is in Porto, ot Strasbourg. Although I'm a 99% teetotaller (christmas and birthdays...), I like a glas of the stuff whenever I'm in Portugal. Anyway, that's how to bring the wine from the wineyards to town, along the Douro river

We had snow again, yesterday. Well, half snow, half rain, wind, cold, real flu weather. But many cafés and restaurants still have chairs and tables outside, for the smokers. Not this one.

I hate winter!

I am more of a summer kind of guy! It it so cold, perfect weather for polar bears and penguins. Which makes me wonder when we'll see one of them roaming the streets of icy Strasbourg...
Oh look, there is a snow leopard! Nice coat!

Morning light

It always gives me a lift in the morning, when I watch the sun rising. I won't enjoy this view much longer, as I'm moving in 2 weeks from today. Oh well, there will be another view!

Weekend in black and white. And some grey.

Earlier this week... A lot of snow this winter, much more to come! Oh well, it even snowed in my old hometown Barcelona yesterday, imagine that!

One of these morning you'll  rise up singing
And you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky

Winter, again

We've had a few "warm" weeks, up to 14 degrees C, but winter is coming back with a vengeance, it seems. No snow yet, this photo was taken one month ago, but it shouldn't be long. NICE!
