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

Last week in Marsaxlokk... Don't ask: no idea how to pronounce it, as I don't speak Maltese. And the Google suggestion for it is Marshmallows... lol

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...

You guessed it: the title of this post is Maltese for... :-)

Tmiem il-ġimgħa bl-iswed u l-abjad/Weekend en noir et blanc

That's weekend in black and white in maltese and in french... As this is the door handle at the french embassy in Valletta, Malta. Nothing to do with them, I just passed there, looking for fish and chips...
You now the drill: click HERE, more b&w if you do. Shame if you don't.
