We made a little road trip today even if it were rainy and cold. We needed out of the city. We headed west thinking we would lose the rain there. Not so, it followed us. We ended up in Schirmeck just at the end of a festival. We were in time to watch a traditional Alsatian dance. All the pictures are below.

    Que c’est beau, l’Alsace ! Les dames avec les grandes couettes à oreilles de marsupilami me rappellent mon enfance, quand j’avais cinq ans et que l’on était en vacances en Alsace avec ma grand-mère qui parlait alsacien. On allait voir des danses folkloriques et on vendait des cartes postales avec des Alsaciennes à la fontaine de Kaysersberg. C’était en 1956 !
