Last Stop Strasbourg

We left Villars in rain, then had snow as we drove over 2 passes on way to Gstaad. Then it was rain again on and off for much of the day.

Had a morning break for a wander around Zweisimmen in the rain. Then Jan drove us to Strasbourg avoiding Bern and most of Basel. We arrived here at 4.30pm just in time for more rain.

My bad back has been painful with all the time sitting in the car the last few days. Worried about it going into spasm so am taking all 3 drugs that doc has given me. Makes me feel a bit spaced out.

We wandered around the old town about 6pm as the rain had stopped and the light was pretty good for photos. Not many people about, reflections in the river and old black and white buildings, ideal for black and white photos!

After a meal it was dark and time for some night shots. I wandered around for about 3 hours taking photos in the old town, including the enormous cathedral and the river.

Time for lights out now, long drive to Calais for Eurotunnel tomorrow. Hopefully some more photos around Strasbourg in sunshine tomorrow before we leave.
