Aliens...

Already 20 years since they landed, and still no sign of fantastic artifacts... Didn't they come to save the world from the human infection???
More b&w here.

Crikey!

The albino wallaby at the small zoo in the Orangerie Park.
Btw, smoking is now forbidden in any park here now. Strasbourg is the first french to introduce this municipal law. Yeah mates!

Don't push!

Weird name for a restaurant: granny in the nettles. It is based on an old french expression, don't push granny in the nettles, ne pas pousser mémé dans les orties, which means don't overdo it.Not sure if I want to eat there...Although, it could mean the exact opposite. Well, we'll see.

Aaron Lordson, aka post 700

I came across this togolese singer this morning... Now, there are many street entertainers in town, some good, some rather awful. But this guy stands definitely out, with the soul in his voice!
You can find many videos on YouTube... Go for it, he is really good!

A monday mural, ay caramba!

A mexican-themed restaurant in Olhao, Algarve, Portugal. Well, not sure about storks in Mexico (probably) but there are thoudands in the Algarve, thousands! So, I guess the artist wanted to add some local color to his mural.
As usual on monday, you can see many more Monday Murals here.
Good dentist, btw.

Rue des Tonneliers

English: cooper street. One of the oldest streets in town, near the Ill river. Making wine barrels since at least 1240 AD, big ones. No coopers left in town nowadays, as far as I know.
I'm quite happy with my work today, so, very exceptionally, I'm including the original photo.

Bredele anyone?

We call them bredele, small breads. A small part of a nearly infinite variety of biscuits or cookies you have here. They are traditionally eaten at Christmas, but you can enjoy them all year long. There are shops that sell nothing else. If you love butter and sugar, go for it!

Last summer...

...aka 2 weeks ago, before the big gates holding back the huge, giganormous amounts of rain opened. Floods everywhere now, even some whole vineyards washed away. WHAT WILL WE DRINK THEN?????

Cliché day, monday murals day :-)

Well. I just came back from a mostly grey, windy and wet week in Portugal. Had a good time though.
In Portugal, everybody knows people eat and live from PEIXE, fish. 365 cod recipes, as the saying goes. A friend of mine has a restaurant at the Ribeira market in Lisbon, specializing in cod. He created many more recipes, as you can do about anything with cabalhau, cod. According to him, there are many more than just miserly 365 recipes.
My personal favorite is bacalhau com natas, Heavy, but sooooo good!
Monday is mural day, Monday Murals. I took this photo in Faro, Algarve, last Friday. Now, the time CLICK has come!
