While working in Paris (in August 99), Eric and I took a weekend off to go to beautiful Strasbourg. On Saturday, it was raining to fill up the rivers so that Sunday can be sunny and shiny. Starting our Sunday well in the afternoon, we spent an hour arguing over a pack of batteries with the local geniuses working at the BP gaz station. Long story but worth it. I'm not tired of saying it yet (typing though is another story). Strasbourg is more than a beautiful French city, one of the centers of the European Union. Check out the pictures of the newly built European Parliament!
