Strasbourg, France

March 11th, 2010

Strasbourg reminds me a lot of Hamilton. It’s a functioning city, but apart from the Cathedral, which is impressive – there’s not a lot going on.

It’s also incredibly cold, leaving me to believe that there’s probably a fully happening social scene happening inside one of the square looming concrete slabs that pass for buildings here. That’s not to say there isn’t an appreciation for design and architecture, but with the exception of the cathedral and various churches dotted around, all effort at the visual aesthetic is saved for the inside.

On that note, I have yet to see this fashion sense the French are apparently so famous for. Everyone seems to be decked out in an endless series of black leather jackets, baggy jeans and black boots. Fashionable perhaps, but lacking in variety.

Tomorrow, we drive to the Czech Republic!
