15 degrees C this week... Should be around zero, at the end of December. Never mind, enjoying the very unusual weather, all doors and windows open.

One of a kind

I have seen Christmas decoration most of my life, in about 18-20 countries. Usually, I barely notice them (just more decorations...). But I really like this unusual one!

Waiting for Harry P.

The local Hogwarts school of wizardry, aka lycée des Pontonniers. LOL

Who let the pigs out?

A butcher shop's idea of Christmas... Vegans, look away! Kevin Bacon might love it.

El Barco Latino

One of several floating restaurants, bars, theatres in town. This one is, oh surprise, a tapas bar. Buen provecho, amigos y amigas!

Winter, but there are still a few leaves to be found. In glasshouses. Winter starts in France at 4.59 PM (16.59), plus 16.49 seconds. I'm enjoying the last 3 hours and 50 minutes of autumn, me! Not counting the seconds.

Empty streets

An old photo. This week, streets are full with tourists, last minute Christmas shoppers succumbing to the thrall of consumerism, kids on holidays... If I need shopping, I do it early.

Grey Sunday

A little digital painting today, the small Christmas market in Obernai. Much better than the huge one in Strasbourg, without the massive crowds, hundreds of thousand tourists and locals... Literally: 2.5 million tourists expected in Strasbourg, social distancing impossible. Do they know about Covid???

Fairytale hotel

Weird architecture... I don't know anything about this building, but it seems to be straight out of a fairytale.

No glitter for me!

I am not into glitter, lights, and so on. I prefer this kind of Christmas decoration. Simple.

Senior railway

Nice day out in Obernai, needed to go out of town, cabin fever...I went there by train, using my senior citizen discount railcard for the first time ever. Not this train though.

CDP theme day: the future

The future... As a lifelong sci-fi fan (anything but Star Wars!), I imagine a city on another planet, Mars, Betelgeuse, Andromeda... Something like this. But not this one: this is Frankfurt, Germany.

More posts about this theme

Live long and prosper.

The 451st Christmas marker, or Christkindlsmaerik, has opened, amidst heightened security measures: Covid, terrorism... The very high Covid incidence rate, 377 and rising, means that we don't how long it will stay open.

Almost winter

Cold and grey November days. The original photo was too grey to my taste, so I colored it.
Will we have snow this winter???
