Gorlitz tram tracks
I love the old-time look of this shot with the tram-tracks merging in the distance. The pedestrians and bicycles make it look like it could have been taken 50 years ago.
Gorlitz train station
Gorlit train station has been in many movies. In particular “The Book Thief” and “Alone in Berlin”. The art-deco building and period platforms are wonderful places to take pics (and the train service is excellent as well).
This vendor was selling the most amazing cheese sticks at the finish line of Cape Town marathon, and after a long 42km run, it was the perfect thing to eat, and a bargain at the price.
They are made by a stall in the Mojo Market in Sea Point, Holy Macaroni, and I certainly plan to pop past there sometime to investigate further.
Busking in Italy
An Italian busker entertains us in the streets of Rome.
The Corinth Canal chops the Peloponnese peninsula off the mainland of Greece.
We found this lovely little footbridge crossing the canal, and if you looked down the canal you could see the water of the canal, going all the way from the Adriatic sea to the Aegina sea. While its only about 6km long, it reduces the shipping distance by over 300km. It was built in the 1880’s – before the Suez and Panama canals, although to be fair it is much shorter.
When I say we found it, we had to look really hard for it, quite literally driving down a dirt road past a rubbish dump to eventually find this footbridge across the canal. It was worth the drive because the bridge has such lovely lines, and the view up and down the canal is spectacular.
