We attended a one week seminar on Patents jointly organized by the European Patent Office, European Patent Academy and held at the Institut Europeen Entreprise et Propriete Intellectuelle, Strasbourg, France. Our venue is also at the building of the International Space University, a university for astronauts. We are free to see the surrounding areas only after the session, which was at 4:30pm. We always hurry to board the train from school to the center of Strasbourg, and walk hurriedly to cover more grounds. We took the cruise to see wider areas in a short time, but it was already dusk and taking pictures of landscapes and buildings was already difficult.
Monoprix is at the center of the 3 buildings. I've read somewhere that "when French is not your first language, every visit to a French supermarket is like walking into a three-dimensional visual dictionary"! I am glad we did not have to enter it, we just tried buying some small items at the Galleries de Lafayette, to bring home as presents.
This is the famous revolving bridge. Pedestrians about to cross the bridge have to wait for the bridge to be put back in place, while a boat is still passing under it, and tourists like us watched the scene in total amazement and amusement!
The photoabove shows the tourists on the boat passing under the bridge's location, while the pedestrians above them on the pavement wait for the bridge for them to go the other side. I love the idea of the revolving bridge!
A fountain is prominently located, where most of the cruises pass by.
