Monthly theme day: orange

From my time living in the kingdom of Orange... aka the kingdom of the Netherlands, home of the royal House of Orange-Nassau. Every year, on King's day, people dress in ... well, orange, to honor present and past kings. Nothing do do with some orange monster in Amerikkka. No no no, it has to do with the old southern french principality of Orange., a town now.
More orange photos here. Having some orange juice now.

Sorry gals and boys, not much time to visit your blogs lately, as my 88 years old mum has been taken to hospital a few weeks ago. Too much to do and to worry about...

Weekend in black and white

Few things are more alsatian than our "storich", storks, cigognes... Well, they can be find elsewhere, but let me be a little chauvinistic today... :-) Anyway, those birds are hosted in stork clinic, in the Orangerie park, where they raise their little ones safely.

Frankfurt is less than 2 hours away. I quite often cross it by plane, train, etc, know the airport very well, but I've never actually visited it. Done now.
The skyline, mainly big international banks, dubbed Mainhattan, the Main being the river.

I just came back from Frankfurt, and yes, I had some franks!
The old HQ of the European Central Bank. The root of all evils, so they say... Specially true in the light of the latest CumEx files revelations. CumEx? Just google it.

I met Patrick in Marghera, near Venice. His unblinking stare made me a little uncomfortable. He may be  an Irish expat, looking for dry land... LOL
Anyhow, more Monday murals here, from al around the world.

Summer docks

Summer docks. In what used to be the old port, every summer, the city transforms the place in front of the central library (building in the back) into a beach; sand, toys, paddle boats...
