A black and white weekend reflection

The building is the Médiathèque André Malraux, our huge central public library, named after a famous french writer and former culture minister.

More b&w here, and more weekend reflections here. And sorry for not browsing your blogs, as I'm having some extremely busy and tiring weeks.

Bassin d'Austerlitz

What was once and an international dock, boats from France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, the Netherland, England and the northern countries, complete with shipyard, is no a recreation area, with music school, a mall, a public library, a beach in summer, many restaurants, a huge cinema...

Australian Pig Face

AKA pig face, beach banana, karkalla, sea fig... Carpobrotus rossii in latin, a native from western and southern  Australia. Question for my aussie friends wintering down under: pig face, really???

A flower named after the french admiral Louis Antoine de Bougainville, an interesting guy. Have a look!

Right at the end of Corfu airport, the Vlacherna monastery on the Kanoni peninsula. The monks left in 1980, too many tourists probably, and far too noisy. I went there early. When I left, around 10 AM, I counted a dozen tour busses, a few hundreds unmasked Italians... Not good.

Weekend in black and white

I was recently welcomed to my hotel room by this strange looking...watchacallit? Any name suggestion welcome! Octopus dismantled? Quartered?

The love channel

In Sidari, 40 km north of Corfu town, you can find true love... According to the legend, anyway. The beach is called Canal d'Amour, in French (I couldn't find out why). More about it here.

A Greek/Russian Monday mural. Cheers!

 Well, I went to Greece last week, once again. The island of Corfu. And this is the only mural I could find, in an ocean of graffiti. Does not look very Greek, does it...

More Monday Murals here. Cheers, comrades! Nazdarovya!

Weekend in black and white

I needed a break, I needed a trip to Greece. So, one week in Corfu, without a computer! I am fully vaccinated! 
As I tend to avoid tourist hotspots, I always go to the backstreets. One of the gems I found there.
