River fortress...

Strasbourg is a fortress right now. We've had a terrorist attack last year during the Christmas market, a guy killed 5 people. So, the city center, an island in the river Ill, is secured. Thousands of police, army, other guards in town. Most bridges are closed, to enter the center, you have to open your bags and coats. Queuing up to 15 minutes. 3 weeks to go. This is one of the few access points.

How sad that it has come to this. It leaves me shaking my head. And such a beautiful city. . .
