August 03, 2012 – Basel

The trip to Switzerland happened last weekend, and the first point of entry was Basel, as there was a direct train from my city in Belgium (sort of, Ottignies is close enough to Louvain-la-Neuve to be called “my city”) to Basel. The Swiss seem to have an obsession with their flag. They’re ubiquitous!

April 29, 2012 – Waving flags

This afternoon, I was pleasantly surprised as I looked out the window and saw…SUN AND BLUE SKY! As such I went out for a walk and decided that today’s photo must show the long-lost blue sky in Bordeaux. I ended up people-watching for quite a long time near the hôtel de ville, or city hall, shown above, with the French flags proudly waving in the wind.
