Colmar, France

The Statue of Liberty was built by Bartholdi who was born in Colmar, France. He used his mother as a model for the face. There is a round about in Colmar that has a miniature Statue of Liberty.  If we can ever find an apartment in the Doubs we will be moved before this July. I will be working my first job in France and Vilay will be working and getting ready to start school. Our lives will be back on track again. However, I will secretly miss not being able to drive to see this miniature version of ‘the Lady’ as Sweet Bear calls her. I read a book to the girls about how the Statue of Liberty was made and the lasting connect between France and America that it created.

The rest of the pictures are of Colmar.  Colmar is a beautiful city.

Below is a picture of a ‘self cleaning’ toilet in a parking lot in Colmar.  After you are finished using it and shut the door it gets busy cleaning up.

I think my old camera’s pictures have richer color.  I am going to have to replace the cable to download the pictures so that I can start using it again.

    Very beautiful. I finally purchased a digital camera. I made it a point to purchase a compact, lightweight camera so I can carry it around in my purse. But I keep forgetting to take it out and take pictures!
    I wonder if you could purchase ‘self-cleaning’ toilets for the home? I’m thinking they would be a big hit in America ;-) especially when you have little boys…of course what you really need in that case is a self-cleaning bathroom…

    Pumpkin, we saw that miniature statue while we there, too! Great pics! By the way, I tried to use one of those public toilets and had trouble getting the door to stay closed while I was in it. Philippe had to hold it closed for me. Not sure what I was doing wrong. It’s cool how they self-clean, though.

    It does look really lovely. I miss France.
