October theme day: my response to COVID

You live only once... I was supposed to fly to Istanbul in march, on a gastronomical holiday, but my flights were cancelled. So, let's cook Turkish and other foreign food at home! Nevertheless, to fight cabin fever, I travelled when it became possible, Croatia in August, Crete in September, always checking the COVID stats before. Gorgeous food in both countries!

More COVID responses here.

A restaurant in the Petite France area. Hopla is the logo for Fischer beer. I'm not a beer drinker, can't stand it.

A weekend reflection

On a flight last week, the sun reflecting on my plane, reflecting on the clouds, with a nice circular rainbow. It is called a Brocken spectre

Culinary promises? Or something else? The restaurant was closed when I passed by, so I didn't participate... :-) Anyway, good reviews on several websites. Normal kosher websites ;-)

Nikos Kazantzakis

Nikos Kazantzakis is, and remains one of my favourite authors. I discovered him in my youth, and he shaped it.

I can't't go to Crete without visiting his tomb.Every time.

I hope for nothing. I fear nothing. I am free.

Μια τοιχογραφία τη Δευτέρα


Greek, for: a Monday Mural. Mia toichografía ti Deftéra.

Well, running out of murals, I went to look for them on the island of Crete, Greece. Bingo! There seems to have been a mural "championship" in Herakleion, the island's capital, beautiful ones. Enjoy!

More Monday Murals here.

Back in town!

 Back in town, after a few days in COVID-free Crete (that's what they say anyway). Had an excellent time, apart of the things stolen from my bag by the ground handling crew at Heraklion airport.

Strasbourg. No tourists in town.
Well, I'm off for a few days, without computer, to a much hotter place. C ya, around September 17th.

Špiro (or Spiridon) Brusina was a croation malacologist (study of mollusks). His statue in on the seafront, in the old town of Zadar. A little more about him here.
Nice beard by the way!

Not my kind of places!

Specially in COVID times. No no no, I love desert beaches, without umbrellas, without people. Desert.

When in Rome...

Well, this is not Rome, this is in Pula, Istria, Croatia. One of the many amphitheatres built by Rome, all around the Med. This one is called the Pula Arena, the 6th largest among the 200  or so surviving amphitheatre. More about it here.

Like walking on water

So, I went to Croatia for a week, Istria and Dalmatia. I didn't actually walk on water, I took planes, coaches, trains and a boat. Kept me (almost) dry, albeit sweaty.
