Sunrise? What sunrise?

Pretty dramatic, no? Lasted all but 3 minutes, before fading to grey.
 Good news: it's finally raining. And snowing on thhe hills nearby. Not a lot, but even a little is welcome

A wonderfully misty and frosty afternoon near Glendalough, Wiklow mountains, Ireland. Eire. This weekend, Ireland (the republic) elects its next president. And also, they will have to decide if blasphemy is still a crime in Ireland...
More weekend in b&w here.

Éirinn go Brách!

Indian summer

Summer is over, and so is indian summer. We're back to normal temperatures, but still no rain... Major drought in France, many rivers are dry. And I mean totally dry, not a drop of water anymore. I've never seen the Rhine river that low.

The not that young Saint Peter

 churches bear the name St Peter "something". This is one is the protestant Young St Peter's church. Young, because it is the youngest of the 3. Young being pretty relatives, as parts of the crypt date back to St Colomban, a small 7th century chapel. As I said, "young" is relative, not only for churches.

Smoking hot!

Yesterday, I went to the mid-sized town of Offenburg, 25 km away, in Germany. They had a "hamburger fish market". The hamburgers were citizens of Hamburg, far up north, no meat anywhere around... lol
Smoked mackerel and potato salad... Heavenly.

While storm Leslie ravages Portugal and parts of Spain, we enjoy a warm summer day. In October.  While 2/3 of France is fast turning into a desert, no rain for many months...

A Monday Mural, on Tuesday, for a change

Ciao from Milano, Italia. A delayed Monday mural, as I was travelling the whole day yesterday.
An antifascist mural near Milano Lambrate train station, as Italy is turning very unfortunately into a fascist regime, in my opinion. Until there is a change in government, as usual in Italy... 61 governments since 1945...
