NC Pt.II - Le Schlucht

We decided to save money by taking country roads instead of the expensive French motorway and made our way through Alsace, the region in Eastern France that’s still populated by German-speaking people.

That’s why the picture above is of Le Schlucht, an interesting language mix consisting of a French article and the German word for gorge*.

That again reminds me of an entry I wrote a while ago on macaronic poetry, which still makes me weep with laughter whenever I stumble upon it. Ach, I’m so easy to please.

*The picture is of course not of the language mix, but of the landscape behind the gorge. Just in case my clumsy wording had you confused for a bit.
