Barcelona, a photo a day


No, this is not Barcelona. This is my pretty hometown Strasbourg, in the Alsace region, north east of France, on the German border. It is a relatively old town, 2023 years, with a very chaotic history, sometimes French, sometimes German. It was even a Socialist Soviet Republic, for 3 days, at the end of WW1.
 Good wine, good beer, very excellent and cholesterol-rich food!

  1. I'm glad to see it is so beautiful.
    I've only heard sad history of Alsace from my nun friends, about the Catholic vs. Protestant times.

  3. I do, Genie, but within limits. The only thing I just can't resist is a good tarte flambee, or flammekueche. This is for me the best food in the world.

  4. What a beautiful place to call home! Unless you eat that food all of the time, you should be fine. I think that when you “go home” you may indulge.
