Strasbourg, France

Tagged along with M. to Germany a few weeks ago, as he was speaking at Frankfurt Book Fair. We flew out a few days early so we could spend the weekend in Strasbourg, France.

I expected the half-timbered buildings (aside: they are really tedious to draw even after you figure out the pattern) and the ubiquitous flammkuchen (tarte flambee). Turns out Strasbourg is also multimodal transportation heaven. There are trams and riverboats and bicycles and pedestrian-friendly squares.

Oh yeah, and a famous cathedral.

We had a nice meal at La Corde a Linge, a riverfront restaurant that specializes in spaetzle and is thematically decorated to evoke a vintage laundry.

I didn't even get to the EU Parliament building or the Rhine, and I hear there's great biking among the vineyards in Alsace -- all to-dos for a future trip.
