A weekend reflection


Big cranes, what's left of the old river port. Now a lively area, with a cinema complex with over 30 screens, shopping mall, big public library, restaurants, a music academy, even a sandy beach during summer (no swimming though).

More weekend reflections right...here.

Resist!!!

Neither LePen nor her gang. The far right grievously harms LGBTQIA+.

 A political post. Photo taken at last Saturday's Gay Pride in Strasbourg. As you might now, we might soon have a far right government, a party founded by former members of the SS. I hope I don't need to tell you what I think about...

Notre Dame

I ventured into the cathedral for the first time in ages. Unusually, there were no long queues, for once.

Hello, mate!

A temporary construct at the cathedral. Ideal for a nap, or for a good book.

... and a bottle of rum!

Very old photo, 14-16 years ago, in  Sitges, near Barcelona. This is a symbol for a company founded in Cuba in 1862, by Señor Facundo Bacardi Masso, born in Sitges in 1814. Try guessing the brand...lol

More b&w right...here

Cheers!

Yesterday morning, on a very rare sunny day. Will it last??? We're having the wettest spring on record, flooding everywhere. Some villages and town have been flooded for the 6th time... this year.
