Bride of Euro Oddities

More curious pics I took on the great Euro adventure... and some new friends.

From Rudesheim am Rheim...  they are very proud of their wine...


And they will ship it anywhere...


My favorite advertising poster, from a fashion shop in Cologne...  This is amazing!  Style, style, style...hair, dress!, chair, shoes...


Speaking of fashion, I did think this was a laundromat in Lyon, but look again... a clothing store.


From Speyer, a modernist tribute to Orpheus...


A couple cars...  a new front-engined Ferrari (Silicon Valley isn't the only IPO center) and, well they still make MGs!  We just can't get them here.



Here's our cruise crew...  the first night's dinner established our group of reasonably like minded souls, and we hung out with them pretty much the whole cruise.


Speaking of the cruise, we had some good entertainment several nights.  A classical duo while docked at Cologne, and a fine French/German singer on another night...




And one of the finest bottles of wine I've ever drunk, and drunk I became...   Not that expensive, locally, unfortunately probably not found outside of France.


I'll finish with a wildflower from deep in the French forests...
