A walk around Frankfurt’s European Quarter or “Europaviertel”, a new housing and business quarter on the site of the city’s former central freight station. Its somewhat dull architecture has been disputed, though.

Dogs visit Frankfurt’s new old town. It took years of construction to more or less rebuild the ancient heart of the city between Römer City Hall and the Cathedral that was destroyed in WWII. Although not completely finished yet, it is now open for the public (and dogs). The shops and cafes still have to move in. In September there will be a huge 3 day celebration to welcome the old town into the city.
The ceiling of the Sagrada familia cathedral in Barcelona, the largest unfinished Roman Catholic church in the world (photo taken in December 2017). The architect, Antoni Gaudí, one of the most famous figures of Catalan culture, spent over 40 years designing the cathedral until 1926 when he died.

Inside the cathedral in Chartes, France, July.30.
Last Tuesday (Mar.22) a job took me to Erfurt, the captital of the federal state of Thuringia. On that very dull and gray day it seemed to be a city with just a touch of color.
