I was molested today. There I was minding my own business, cycling along the route to Kehl (Germany) and without a by-your-leave a Christmas tree suddenly leaps out and slaps me around the chops with a beneedled bow.

Or at least – that’s how it felt. While one week earlier the chances of colliding with an over-sized christmas decoration was slim to none, now they’re almost impossible to avoid. And that will remain the case until the Strasbourg Christmas Markets close in early January 2007.

Christmas in Strasbourg is indeed something special – if only for the fact that it lasts six weeks and starts in November!
