Station decoration

28 Nov 2008 / 0 Comments / in Journeys

Leaving Strasbourg I look up at the ceiling at the train station and see it is wooden and painted with a flower design, similar to the one in Aleppo.

The old part of the station is covered over with a glass structure.¬† It’s a bit like a glass dish placed over a piece of aged Roquefort.
