"A Wedding in Pecs, Hungary" shrimp56's Profile
'Tis the wedding season in our extended family. Just back from Pecs, Hungary, which is still just as beautiful, if not more so. Then in December off to Skopje, Macedonia. Then all our "eurokids" will be married. PHEW
Just home from a cruise on the Eurodam RT from Amsterdam to Norway. Finished with a few days in Paris.
Mid-June 2013 cruise on the Veendam to New England and Canada.
Wedding in Skopje, MK in December
Caribbean Cruise on Celebrity Century in February
Mediterranean Tapestry cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam in June
Japan, but especially Kyoto, have been on my bucket-list for years. Finally the right opportunity arose and I visited Kyoto and area in November 2011. While the trip focused on artisans and artists, there were enough gardens to make me happy:)
THANK YOU VT!!!*
Paris is my heart and it means so much to me that you appreciate my PARIS PAGE
I've updated my CHICAGO PAGE with more on my wonderful city's architecture & art
Don't miss Chartres & Giverny
San Diego in December 2012 was a nice break from Chicago in December. The focus of this short visit to see friends and art. We also managed to eat;)
We saw the San Diego Museum of Art and the Mingei International Museum [folk art] We ate at Ave 5, Celadon, Hane Sushi and A.R. Valentien at The Lodge at Torrey Pines. We saw Balboa Park and Sunset Cliffs on Point Loma.
Updates are in progress.
We sailed on the MS Volendam from Vancouver. Both the ship and Vancouver were wonderful.
Tips will be under Vancouver, Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay and Ketchikan. The review of the ship in general will be on my Alaska page.
The Monadnock Building displays the thick load-bearing masonery walls prevalent before the Chicago-based development of the steel-framed, concrete pier skyscraper in the late 1800s. On the right the Santa Fe Railway Exchange Building benefits from the steel frame to provide more window space and a decorated surface.
These pictures were taken on a recent tour I gave for some visiting friends. I am hoping to pull my architectural photos together into a tour of Chicago architecture -- one of these days:)
All photographs and text on my pages were created by me, unless specifically stated otherwise, and, within the stated VT policies, are not to be used without my permission.
I am happy to receive postcards and emails and will do my best to respond to communications promptly.
