A Walk Through the Snow

We had some snow in Trier this and last week, but not that much, and not long enough for me to get any decent pictures.

But I remembered that I took some great ones two years ago and only ever shared them on Facebook but not here.
So, enjoy this walk through snowy Trier, including the Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas market) from December 17, 2010.

Hú Jǐntāo poster

Hu Jintao poster

"你 是 谁 ?" (You are who?) asks this poster showing Chinese president Hú Jǐntāo. I don't know who put it up (or why), but its location near the birthplace of Karl Marx ensures that a lot of Chinese tourists will see it.

Ich liebe dich, Alina!

Someone loves Alina and to spray paint. Nice.

If I hadn't changed the adress of this blog like a million times already I'd just go ahead and take that dreaded word "daily" out entirely. Instead I'm just going to propose a change in the meaning of the word itself...

In the meantime, here's something I snapped today on Hauptmarkt. Love them blue ladies!

pedestrian descent

The sign says 'stairs' (and 'wear hats', apparently), the pavement disagrees. Bonus: funny graffito, if you can find it...

fire station

I actually saw the "Feuerwehr" (fire-fighters) in action two days ago, when three of those big fire trucks were parked outside a house near where I live, with firemen all over the place. I later found out that it had been a false alarm; someone fell asleep with the oven on and called them when he awoke to the kitchen filled with smoke. In the end, all the 21(!) deployed firemen had to do was turn off the oven and open a few windows. Better safe than sorry, I guees.
