Fun fair- Tivoli – in Grenoble

As we arrived Grenoble from Paris with our rented car, I couldn’t help to notice the fun fair – or the Tivoli as it’s also called. Immediately I decided that I would go there one evening to take some pictures. So we brought our friend and the camera and headed over: All the coloured lights against the dark backdrop was an excellent opportunity to shoot some photos!

Chateau d’eau, place Grenette, Grenoble.

When we went to visit our dear friends in Grenoble this Easter/Pesach/Days-off-work, and I promised you that I would keep you updated with some photos from Grenoble. I’ve already posted two in a post called Evening in Grenoble, and today I felt that the time was right to post another photo: this one slightly more photoshopped than the other two 🙂

Here’s one of Grenoble’s many fountains – one of countless charming features to this charming city.

Journey (Weekly Photo Challenge)

“Share a picture which means JOURNEY to you!”

Recently I translated this travel article I wrote from Nepal. Now I’m on a journey to the French Alps, so I don’t have time to write. But I’ll leave you with these two photos from Oslo:

Life in a village by the foot of the Himalayas

I promised you that I would translate this into English and here it is: This is a travel article I wrote for a newspaper several years ago, concerning daily life in a small village just outside Pokhara Lakeside, Nepal.

Pokhara – that’s where I’m located between sunrise and sunset these days. Where I’m at during the hours that we refer to as sleep, is somewhat unclear. I assume that I’m  sleeping in the little stone house that I rent outside the city and outside the tourist area. But, as they say in Spanish:
