Post 1000

The feline equivalent to internet

1000th post for this blog, many more on my other blogs. I'm fighting a blogger's block, it's getting hard. Henceforth, I will carry on posting, but less regularly. I started blogging in Dublin, in December 2006, and I need a break.
No worries, Dragonstar's b&w crew, you'll see me every Friday! You'll see me here, but not necessarily on this Strasbourg blog of mine.

A farmhouse

Looks very old... Very often the foundation date is engraved on the lintel, but I couldn't find anything here. My  (educated) guess would be 15th century, but it could be older. From a time when Bilbo was young.

Kehl am Rhein

Our tiny neighbor city, in Germany, just across the Europa bridge, just across the Rhine river, 15 minutes from Strasbourg city center. A part of Strasbourg, from 1939 till 1953
As many things are cheaper in Germany,, cigarettes, food, cosmetics, and as Strasbourg is 30 times bigger, there always more frenchies than Germans in town. It is pretty much a bilingual town, which is very good!

The way

As a former work zombie, I couldn't agree more... Destroy your work zombiness, and start again.

Somewhere in the Petite France area, in the old town, there is this hidden courtyard, with a strange tree. Not sure what it is about.

Under construction

A brand new gigantic mural, here in Strasbourg, in the Esplanade area. Painted over the dull front of a student home. A close up, to appreciate the size of it:

Berlin HBf

Waiting for the S-Bahn, aka metro, at Berlin central station, last December. No ballet in Spandau for me though.:-)

Stork reintroduction center

We used to have many storks here, but in 1972, the number was down to only 5 couples. Thanks to this center and to several charities, there are now approximately 750 couples in Alsace, about 60 of them in the Orangerie park, next to the Council of Europe.
