Hmm. Looks pretty great to me as I sit looking out on near freezing drizzle and wet once in a while snow. Beautiful shot.
Botanic Garden's changing high greenhouse lights and decorated trees as seen from Bartholdi Park.
Bare trees, dead dry brown leaves and a real chill give a real post Halloween look to these houses.
Just looking up some Barracks information and found a good photo of "Jack" at the MBW web site.
Eastern Market has a well known farmer's and flea market on week-ends and has expanded its farmer's market some with "Fresh Tuesday" in which vendors, mostly Amish, set up outside. Market Poultry is known for its fresh turkeys and on these holidays lines form. Many order well in advance and the supply from outside trundles orders in constantly.
The truckload of fresh turkeys is for the line at Market Poultry on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. One of the family said tomorrow will be absolutely crazy.
That is a relief! After my first taste of a good English beer over forty years ago I lost my taste for the U.S. standards of the old days as tasteless carbonated stuff. Now we have some truly great micros. I would like to get back your way to try your versions. Dogfish Head (Delaware) and Heavy Seas (Baltimore) brew some very good ones in the region. Dogfish does really interesting stuff that is more like wine making than brewing to give "beer" that is more like Port. Every other year they do a stout, World Wide Stout, that is really interesting with an 18-20% alcohol content that makes it very much like an after dinner drink.
Maybe next time. I always want to return to Rio.
ha! Cinza! Bingo!!! Hauptpost Oldenburg! :-)
Obviously a fairly modern building with satellite communications carved in the stones.
