Mystery Photo

No idea where this was taken.  It was taken during our weekend trip to Strasbourg and Germany.  Some place along the French-German border?


Strasbourg is a beautiful city with a gorgeous cathedral.  We visited my Dad's colleague and his wife who were there for a visit.  While my parents had dinner with them the three children went to dinner on our own.

Freiburg and Offenburg

Weekend trip to Germany - in a rental car as ours need repairs (again!)

Cine Club

In our school there was a Cine Club that my brother and I joined.  All the films were either in French or dubbed.  The two I remember enjoying the most were La Belle et La Bete and Fenetre sur Cour.  The one that I still don't understand to this day is Duel - for years I thought this was a language issue but I now know that was not the barrier.

Chartres Pilgrimage

Chartres is a beautiful cathedral.  It was where John of Salisbury was Bishop and Dad did his PhD dissertation on "The Educational Thought of John of Salisbury"
