Enjoying the sunshine. In France, according to tradition, babies are born in a cabbage. But here in Alsace, storks bring the new born babies, special delivery. How is it  in your tradition?

A Monday Mural

Missy did it! I had never heard of her, but I saw (and posted)  several murals of her. Kodos to a local artist!
 More Monday Murals right... here.

It's an art!

The art of tossing pizza in the air, and not getting them on your head. Many years training, I suppose.

A sign of times

This is Isaak Iselin. Isaak was a 18th century swiss philosopher of history and politics. I really wonder what he would think of today's world...

More b&w

Faster, pussycat!

More Monday Murals here.

Today, 2 years and 1 day after the first lockdown in France, end of the mask and covid pass mandate. You'll only need to wear  masks in public transports, hospitals and retirement homes. For how long, as the incidence is rising?????????

Yo soy magia

Yo soy magia, I am magic. Might be the door of a spanish-speaking, flower loving magician, here in Strasbourg. Well, we are a very international town!

The raven's courtyard

Probably the most beautiful hotel in town, with prices starting at 242 euros/night. It's a renovated 16th century building in the city center, an inn since at least 1528 AD.

A Monday "mural"

Compared to other places, we don't have many murals in Strasbourg. But most mail boxes or electric boxes have been decorated. Many of them by local artist Jaek El Diablo.

Many more real murals here.

Climb the fence...

... at your own risk. A word of warning: this might hurt. They look almost like disused halberds.

Cataplanas reflections

A cataplana is an item of cookware used to prepare Portuguese seafood dishes, popular in the country's Algarve region. The cataplana is also the name of a typical dish down there.
 As usual, more weekend reflections right...HERE

Friday 4 March 2022

A few years ago, a group of locals decorated a pedestrian street in the city center, the aptly named "children's play street", rue du jeu des enfants. The whole streets, walls, they painted even the pavement. Good job! 

More b&w here, for your weekend.

Vicus caecorum

Vicus caecorum in 1252, or blind street now. Rue des aveugles in French, Blindeg瓣ssel in Alsatian (no, not German...) It describes my life pretty well. I have a bad case of cataract, waiting for an operation. The world is hazy. Oh well, I still can see enough to post, read, cook... Everything will be much clearer and brighter after the painless operation. Can't wait!

Wednesday 2 March 2022


Good news! Since yesterday, you can have a drink on a terrace, without a mask, and without having to show a Covid pass! I think I'll have a coffee!
