My ex helped build it. I literally grew up there and danced there in a Folk Dance Group. Also spent many weekends there - brought back memories. Great picture.

Wir haben endelich Schnee! But not really enough to spare to send to you... Still, your alpine village looks very gemutlich in this shot.

Yes, I love that tartan dress too, but like you have broad shoulders so would not be the picture of elegance.

Be careful what you wish for. We're expecting a real blast this evening. It will be pretty, but not much fun to get around in. I think I might go for a cross country ski and feel like I'm in an alpine village. This one seems like the next best thing. Did you go there for dinner? Did I ever tell you my "kao krave na paši" story and Alpine Village?

Today here everything was WHITE outside, I'm so happy, it's wonderful!
I hope you can see some snow there soon!

I went there as a child on several occasions - not Oktoberfest. I'm amazed that it's still there.

Wow, beautiful and Christmassy. Some lovely photos on this blog.

Thank you for sending me the flower link-- gorgeous pictures that made me smile!

I don't remember visiting here, although I grew up in Torrance. My Christmas memory from Torrance is driving down Sleepy Hollow (street? lane? drive? don't remember) and it was one of the few streets in town with big trees lining both sides, that they'd decorate with lights. It was like driving through a magical tunnel of lights... although as a child, everything is magical at Christmas!
