Post 2500

 Or 4436, with my old CDP blogs, Barcelona and Amsterdam. I'll be celebrating with a pot of coffee.

Guess where?

I give you a clue: this is not Strasbourg, even though we have a few rivers and canals, a lot of boats...

A minimalist weekend in black and white

Opéra National du Rhin

On top of the building, the muses, Euterpe, Clio, Thalia, Melpomene, Erato and Terpsichore. The opera was built in 1804, destroyed (war) in 1870 and rebuilt 3 years later. A glorious building. To be called a "national" opera is a consecration in France. Gonna watch Lakme, by Léo Delibes, can't wait!

I want to ride my bicycle

Strasbourg, bicycle capital of France. Almost as many bikes stolen then in Amsterdam, many to be found later in rivers and canals....

Not sure what the boots are for... Yesterday's and today's posts are about an exhibit at this year's Foire Européenne de Strasbourg, our yearly European fair. Author unknown.
 The same in b&w, for the weekend in black and white (oops, once again I forgot what day it is... The perks of being retired, lol)

Taste it before you buy it

Sausage galore. I've read somewhere that we have 2849 different sausages in France. 1520 in Germany. France: 1, Germany: 0! LOL. As I am half French, half German, that's a lot of sausages for me!!!

The light at the end of the tunnel...

The massive entrance to the old citadel, part of the fortifications fighting off nasty Germans. Or French. Attila and his Huns came much earlier.  Now a beautiful park. Old photo, but I'll be there next Saturday, together with about 200 ONGs and charities. And food trucks!

The wasp

Wasp: vespa in Italian. Spotted this nice and seemingly quite new one this week on our main square, far from Italy. More info about Italian "wasps" here.
