Transmongolia

Buskers from Mongolia is something you don't see every day, even here. The guys were throat singing, very unusual. And I liked it!
Transmongolia is the name of the band, they seem to be quite famous.

Interfaith

The Kandinsky room

Hi there. I could not post yesterday, Had to go to my old computer's burial. Now, I am trying to get familiarized with a french keyboard, bewilderingly weird.

Now then. Wassily Kandinsky has always been one of my top fav artists. And oh joy, he has his own room at the musée of modern art!!!

Spitaltor

Right in the most central center of town, is the huge complex of the Hopital Civil. It's big, and it's old, very old. Legend says it was founded by Duke Attic (St Odile's father) in 675 AD. But the first written proof dates from 1119. Old. Nowadays, most existing building were built around 1718. On my photo, one of the entrances to the complex, the Spitaltor, or hospital gate. The chapel you see on the side is 'new': 1428.

Several other hospitals in Strasbourg, all of them much newer!

Livres en Liberte

Oh look, there is a new free lending library in the Orangerie park! The last one burned down last year. Books in many languages. It works like this: take any book you want, and feel free to bring them back, or not, no obligation. Feel also free to offer books! Love it! 
I have enough to read for the moment, 1300 pages by Vikram Chandra, so I browsed, but didn't take anything. Later.

Hide and seek

The sun was hiding, and I am a sunseeker! At ungodly hours, as usual, sipping my first coffee and watching the fireworks in the sky from my kitchen window.
