The Cathedral of Strasbourg can be seen in the back. One of the movie theaters of Strasbourg is just behind the bikes. When it is warm there are always people sitting in the front of the theater outside sipping strong coffee and talking in small groups.
Art students were demonstrating (not sure why) on foot and bike while singing and blowing whistles.
The students set up “camp” here and placed several pieces of their own art work around the white swirly structure just near the tram. The préfecture is nearby.
I love this picture. Somehow, it captures Strasbourg perfectly.
Petite Clown was tired and didn’t want to walk. Unfortunately, her stroller finally broke after two years of rugged use. She didn’t mind hitching a ride with Boy Blue. Actually, this is how we go to get Sweet Bear from school. I am afraid of the busy street we must cross to go to and from the school. So, Petite Clown rides below. It is really cute. It was her idea. One day we were walking to the school and she was tired. She started to climb inside the bottom of the stroller. I checked to make sure she wouldn’t be hurt and thought, “Why not?” It has worked out great.
This tunnel is in need of repair. I told my husband last year that it was terrible. The sidewalk is broken up badly and we must pass in the street. Generally, that is ok. However, sometimes cars come through too fast and it scares me. Most streets in Alsace are in very good condition. Only a few are forgotten. The new ice rink is just behind us in this picture and it is an easy walk to the beautiful creek and community gardens just beyond this passage. I think the area between Cronenbourg and Strasbourg is going to be cleaned up once and for all with the new tram line and the TGV coming. You can see all the “Spring cleaning” going on all over Strasbourg. It is crazy how fast they are building and cleaning up the old fallen quartiers.
In France, tabacco products can only be sold at a tabac. Tabacs sell magazines, candy and various other things.
