Tres Chic Veronique

 

a photo blog

I went back to my home town, and here is what I saw:
my high school:
Lycee des Pontonniers

a lot of shopping bags (which miraculously all fit into my tiny little suitcase!):
tres petite valise, beacoup de shopping

My brother's appartment building (I can tell he's still sleeping because his red curtains are drawn):
hello brother!

The Strasbourg Cathedral:
Cathedrale

A village-like view from right behind my father and step-mother's appartment, right in the middle of town!:
vue campagnarde en plein Strasbourg

Lots of cycling lanes:
a la belle vie

Then, we spent the weekend in the Vosges mountains. This is the heart of the alsacian vineyards:
vignes

We had dinner in a little village restaurant (vegetarians, avert your eyes!). Can you guess what I ate? I'll give you one hint: in alsacian, it's called "schwina zingala".
miam!

We took a walk to Trout Lake (Lac des truites):
Lac des Truites

The view from the house. The neighbor's cows graze on my dad's property!
vue champetre (meuh!)

Then it was back to Paris. The Gentlemen's sock with Lozenge Pattern and I contemplated our plane at Charles de Gaulle airport:

And the next thing I knew, I was back in NYC:
