Does anyone still send postcards? Can' remember the last time I did. If I did, I would choose a vintage one.

Not only for Christmas!

Traditional Alsatian kugelopf (many ways to write it), originally eaten for Christmas. You can get them (or make them) anytime and everywhere now. Either sweet, with raisins and almonds, or salty, with bacon bits and nuts. I love them both!

A winery

The Alsace region produces 7 types of wine, 6 whites and a rosé in the village of Ottrott. This is a winery in Kintzheim, 50 km south of Strasbourg, in a traditional and well kept building. White wine therefore.

So, last Saturday, we went to this bird place in Kintzheim (try to pronounce it, lol). We saw amongst many others, this amazing pyguargue (in French), sea eagle in English.
