A weekend reflection… Wishing one of those 60-footer IMOCA class monohulls in the Port Vell was mine… Friends and sponsors, start saving: 70 days left until my birthday!!! I need a bit of south Pacific, it’s good for the soul! And no worries, I can handle this! Oh well, it’s easier for 2 people. Care to join me?

La Petite France, or what’s behind a name

Leaving Paris, we are now in the city of Strasbourg, north east of France, at the german border. My hometown.
This is la petite France, the area known as little France, with a gruesome history to its name. There was a hospice in the area, called l’hospice des veroles, built during the 15th century, specially for people suffering of syphilis (most of them prostitutes). Syphilis was better known as the french disease, as it was brought by french soldiers. Therefore the name of the area…
Nowadays, it is the center of the old town, with a lot of very pretty houses, most of them over 500 years old, crossed by the river Ill. No hospice anymore, just lots of good restaurants. And tourists.
Have a look here to see many more weekend reflections.

Skywatch Friday

The sky above Plaza de Catalunya last weekend, for Skywatch Friday


The faun?

Another busker on Plaza Catalunya, near the fountains? Or an escapee of Greek mythology? Pan means bread in Spanish, by the way… 😉

More watery photos here, if Kim has time enough to activate the meme on her holidays home, in the Philippines.

And happy spring everybody, the astronomical spring starts today in the northern hemisphere, at 12AM Spanish time!


Black and white Skywatch Friday

The Plaza Real in Barcelona is an absolutely beautiful square, in any weather or time of day/night. Here it is in monochrome, for Skywatch Friday and Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.

The street lamps on the side were designed by Antonio Gaudi himself.

More about it later, still house hunting in the new place.The last post will probably be on May 10th, on our 4th blogaversary. So enjoy the last 3 months of Barcelona Daily Photo!
