  1. These are absolutely brilliant! We discovered a few incredible pieces of street art in Sligo too, should make an effort to capture them all one day. thanks for sharing and have a good day πŸ˜€ Aiva

    • All due thanks to Flavia. πŸ™‚ I have yet to go to Uruguay or Paraguay. Though one of my daughters went to a congress there and sent me a few good street art shots.
      Bon week-end.

      • I’m answering here, since I can’t find a way to do it on my blog. I liked Italy too. Way too many churches, however. LOLOL I know it’s because that’s how the rich guys showed how wealthy they were, at least that’s what our guide said…the one with the most money built the tallest church. When the other guy ran out of money, his church was a little shorter, so the other guy won. Sigh. But Italy felt so different than Paris. It’s thicker and more earthy. Paris is New Year’s Eve. That’s the best way I can describe it. Paris felt like I had come home. Everything about it felt just right and I loved it. Italy was okay. I’d never go back, but my cousin wants to go to Palermo so we can see where our grandparents came from. I want to go too, but only if we go to Paris afterwards. πŸ™‚ I framed some of my pictures and bought others, so I can see her. It could be that I just haven’t been there long enough to know anything about being there, but I’ve never, in my entire life, enjoyed food as much as I did there. Amazing. It’s just so beautiful.

      • The church thing sounds like the British Colombia Potlach… A very universal human trait of who can p… the highest of farthest… Tsss.
        Paris is New year’s Eve? Interesting… I do remember great New Year’s Eve dinners in Paris. Xmas tends to be for family, while New Year is with friends.
        Looks like you have a good negotiation going with your cousin. (Palermo now? Didn’t go there. We went with the girls to Sicily ages ago, but on the East side, from Taormina to Syracuse… Buona notte… πŸ˜‰

    • Looked it up. I missed that movie. We were in Africa then and there was no cinema. The poster reminds me of The sound of music. Which we saw in Holland, where we’d been posted. πŸ™‚
      (They ain’t makin’ movies like that no more…)
      πŸ˜‰
      (As my grandfather would have said)

      • Yes, also crime and spy movies. There was one about a serial killer, where one did not see all the gory details. Oh, good, we thought, but then when he was interviewed by the police, he described everything in detail, so that was the end of that … πŸ˜‰

        But I would never watch hospital movies with operations etc. either … πŸ˜€

      • LOL. Criminal Minds was a good series, interesting characters and actors. But too gory. We still have the Disney channel, but that is lame. πŸ˜‰ At any rate I barely watch more than 1 hour TV a day. Books never fail however.

      • For us it depends what is shown. At the moment they are showing the Sherlock Holmes movies with Jeremy Brett again, in our opinion the best Holmes so far. And sometimes there is nothing we like.

      • Happens to us a lot lately. We just finished a pleasant Australian series: Miss Fisher. Simple plots, good manners and great 30’s costumes. πŸ™‚
        Jeremy Brett? I’ll look him up. We’ve just started an older Holmes series with Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and the “Hobbit” as Watson. Irregular, but a touch of the old/new British humour which is not unpleasant.
        I may go back and watch the old Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes. Guaranteed success.
        TschΓΌss.

      • Yes, her Hispano-Suiza was top notch. A shame it only had three seasons. Not gore enough?
        Try You tube for Rathbone. That’s where we saw many episodes a few years back.

      • I think men especially don’t like that free spirit … not if it is in a woman … πŸ˜‰
        But fans know that the flippancy etc. is a shield, which she needs because of bad experiences. And she won’t let herself be bullied or gouverned by a man again. Many men are scared of women like that.

      • Many? Most. πŸ™‚ It is probably one the reasons why women were so… badly treated in history. Fear. And many cultures still nurture that fear.
        Going back to Miss Fisher, you’re right. Which makes the character all the more attractive. She faced dire circumstances and decided to be free.
        I liked all the characters on that show. It was good writing. A shame it didn’t last long. We’ll wait a bit and watch them again.
        Cheers.

      • Abslutely. That would have been perfect. But the studios are obsessed with ratings. When the basis for ratings is actually gone: Advertising. It is no longer the rationale… I also suspect actors are “throwable”. The minute a series gets some success, you have to pay the actors more, so you can the series, start a new one with 5 of the 1000 actors queuing outside the door who will accept any salary, as long as they have a part as regulars… Sigh.

      • Humans are a weird species … what I can’t have or do, nobody else shall … there does not seem to be any learning out of experience for mankind as such. Every new generation has to make their own experiences, often the same. I mean the planet is quickly going fascist and fanatic again.

      • Very much and frighteningly so. WWI was 20 million dead? WWII 60 millions? One would have thought “never more”, right? But no. Ready to go at each other’s throats again. And one many dead will there be this time? One billion? Two?
        Hannah Arendt once wrote that every human being has to re-invent the world the minute s/he is born. (There is no genetic transmission of memory) Hence the importance of education. To pass on previous experience. BUt Education has been so neglected… I do hope we won’t live to see WWIII…
        Meanwhile… Bon week-end, “Brigitte”. πŸ˜‰

      • Yes, Cumberbath is a bit excessive. But better than most current productions? (Are we getting old?) πŸ˜‰
        Need to see how we can get Brett. We have Netflix and Amazon Prime but both have limited choices. I think it’s because we live in Mexico, which has a bad pirate reputation… Sigh
