the cathedral, the old town,
stumbling back to the hotel
after edelzwicker, choucroute,
pork, bread and conversation
looking up, down, and around
to catch a few more moments
on a small digital memory device
before chasing sleep happily
but having to leave
those who don't know history
are doomed to repeat it...
don't try this at home, kids!
climbing a few hundred steps to the tower of the cathedral... lo and behold:
top-notch graffiti from the past 4 to 5 centuries are abound.
keep in mind that the great "horloge",
the astrononomical clock at the cathedral,
is always watching,
since the 1600s.
below, inside the cathedral proper, helvetica rules:
not for style, but the simple necessity of keeping brash visitors well-behaved.
if you know all 3 languages, please note the very different introductions at the top intended for 3 different mentalities...
so sad to leave, after a great time...
on trains in france, watch out for cute icons:
they indicate where to use oblong vibrating items such as cel phones, and how to set their temperature.
