San Francisco. July 2016. I would gladly buy the little blue house. But I understand real state prices in Frisco belong to another dimension. The Twilight Zone maybe? ๐Ÿ™‚2-2016-07-18-20-22-37

Sophia Loren. A few years ago. (Gentlemen don’t tell). On the wall of a restaurant. Cuernavaca, Mexico. July 2016.

The big wheel. Tuileries garden, Paris. Honestly? I find this big wheel out of place.

  1. Beautiful pictures. I visited Brussels a number of years ago and marveled at the Grand Place, so beautiful lit up at night!

    • Yes, yes, yes! Such beauty at night. ๐Ÿ™‚ Brussels is but a small town, but I go back regularly. (Taking advantage to complete my collection of Franco-Belgian comics, hehe!) A bientรดt, Coeur de feu.

      • I love Brussels. I lived in Germany. Travelled to Brussels only to have my car break down. I spent a week there waiting for it to be fixed, hanging out in coffee shops , going to movies dubbed in English staying at an old hotel where me and my friends were the only guests(creepy) ! How’s the collection coming along.

      • That was a fantastic adventure/experience. So that’s where your german come from. “A creepy hotel in Brussels” calls for a story. Collection is doing fine. Close to 800 comic books. I buy a suitcase-load in Paris every summer. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Oh, I thought sis was picking her nose from the inside. ๐Ÿ˜› XD You’re both lovely – looking a little bit naive (or just curious?) yourself, maybe, but children are allowed to. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    There’s no view like the one in Conakry, I tell you that. Feels like Waterworld. ๐Ÿ™‚
    That big wheel’s definitely out of place, but Sophia and Marcello could stay anywhere. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And speaking of italian, shouldn’t the title spell “ventiquattro” or is that a similar language?
    Take it with a grain of pepper ๐Ÿ™„ if you like but in my opinion seventh is hardly an art anymore, but more like cartoons with people in them, sporadically.
    Nothing (good) to say about Brussels so I say nothing (good old saying). Even that mexican lion agrees. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Don’t mention it. Dragos’ comment about the glazed look made think. We would sail to the islands every sunday morning early. Spend all day in the water and sun, swimming, skiing, snorkeling, playing pirates with an inflatable boat and sail back to the boat club before dusk. So we kids, at the end of the day, were generally “high” on sun, salt and sea. ๐Ÿ™‚
