If there ever was a place designed to break one's neck, that staircase would be it.

There is a handrail on the left; you just don't see it in this photo.

Another strange artefact in the area of that building up there.

From the sign in the bottom-left corner, it must be somewhere in France. But the only one I can read says "Toutes directions" which doesn't help much.

The first two pictures are taken in Plombières-les-Bains and the third one is in Luxeuil-les-Bains. If you look at the french wiki version you find more detailed information.

Both are spas as the area has lots of mineral springs. I used the spa in Plombières-les-Bains. Very interessting place - the spa is spread over different buildings which are connected by tunnels build by the Romans. From the Hamam you can even look into a hamam that was also build by the Romans, but is not used anymore.

There is also a public trinking fountain very you can go and trink the water.

You might be more familiar with two other places in that area - Vittel and Contrexéville.

Since you're soliciting opinions LEP, I'll just give mine. I love the ET Photo blog. It's something I look forward to every week. It adds a glimpse into the lives of the people who hang here, and I find it really interesting.

Thanks. I, and I'm sure In Wales, are most happy to hear that.

I totally agree! I love looking at the pics and appreciate the effort that goes into setting up the diary each week.

I'm always so jealous of your European street scenes: sophisticated, colorful, interesting.  We do 'hokey' here in small town New Mexico. Here's a few pics from the recent Labor Day parade.  

Have to have the horse and wagon, followed by a few tractors!

And here's the Chamber of Commerce tossing out candy for the kids.  

And the scrambling kids.  

Not sure if you have these guys in Europe, but every parade in the States has the Masons on their trikes.  

And of course the political statements!

Hey, we have tractors in Bremen too! (though if you look carefully, with new technology they don't stay on the tracks.)

Though i mussay, our politix can be a bit strange.

Can't speak for Bremen, but i used to live in Remscheid, near the Neanderthal center, where we had Masons with 2-wheel trikes.
