Bonne année et bonne santé

Phase two of our tripartite winter holiday: New Year’s in Strasbourg.

The weather was cold and there was snow on the ground.

We sampled the things that France is famous for: great food, shopping, art

The shopping district was beautifully decorated and the Christmas markets were still on until Twelfth Night.

The Cathedral of Our Lady of Strasbourg celebrates its 1000th anniversary in 2015.  For four centuries it was the tallest building in the world.

My favorite thing in Strasbourg was the astronomical clock in the cathedral. Figures move, a rooster crows; it’s quite wonderful.

The owner of our comfortable AirBnB likes to cook, so that meant we had all the tools we needed to prepare a New Year’s Eve feast.

The next day we skyped the rest of the kids who were gathered in Oregon to wish them all a happy new year.
