So. I made it! And here are some belated photos of the remaining Christmas lights.
Here you can see the cathedral just behind.
And I love this shockingly bright and blue tree in the middle of Place Gutenberg. In the background you can see a crepe stand, where I bought my first nutella crepe in 2007! Surely as important a milestone as any.
I love Strasbourg, but maybe not so much in winter given the weather and the hyped-up touristy feel to everything. Thanks to the EU and the Christmas market, prices are generally on par with Paris, so it's not like you can eat better and cheaper just because you've escaped Paris. But more on that to come. Right now I'm recovering from a lethal 2 for 1 happy hour-tarte flambee a volonte-combo sort of evening. Ah, Alsace.
