It does look like a lovely building!
Philine: Yes, it is a large inner court, I went through a gate ...- Many thanks, Elizabeth!
i'm sure that Chad would rent this place for six months out of the year Philine...

this is a great photo of light and shadows....petersmile
Philine: Basel is worth a visit, but it cannot compete with the grandious mountains in Switzerland. Many thanks, peter!
Un beau petit coin qui plaira certainement à  notre ami Chad Philine!
Bonne journée
Philine: Je ne sais pas - il n'a écrit pas un comment. Merci beaucoup, M. Richard!
Bon lundi

You have a fine eye for the unusually interesting, Philine.

The pipeidge here is tortured here Philine
Philine: Originally I used the word 'tortured' or 'torted', too. Many thanks, Chris!

I wonder how else they could have done this, Philine
Philine: There is always an alternative, Lisl! Many thanks!
We call this adapting to the environment, Philine. grin
Philine: Quite correct, Ginnie! Heel bedankt!

Well seen and they are smart to make the water drop in that corner and NOT on the side of the house which will make it too wet and over the years mold will come into the house.
Love the cobble stones.
Philine: You are a very competent person in technical things! Yes, Basel is a lovely, old city. Heel bedankt, Astrid! Enjoy Dordrecht and the royal family!
A very Heath Robinson construction Philine
Philine: I had to google the name Heath Robinson, you are right, thank you very much, Bill! What did Angela say seeing you dominated by a cute dog?

Trying to sneak around the corner. But you have sought it out! Actually a very pleasant little entrance.
Philine: Haha, yes, I sneaked (I like this verb!) around the corner and in the court which belongs to this house, but I didn't dare to go forward, after a young business man had asked me what I would be looking for! The Swiss human beans are a special species of humankind. Thank you kindly, Mike!
Someone was interested in style when building this gutteridge.
Philine: Maybe, many thanks, Mary!

That happens when the architect forgot about plumbing.
Philine: Perhaps the building is too old. Heel bedankt, Louis! I hope your wife is celebrating Koningdag in orange, too.

I like the mix of light, shade and shadows; the gutteridge is a bonus smile
Philine: Oh, I have to learn English from y o u! I don't know the difference between 'shade' and 'shadow', I thought they are synonym, but I'll look into my dictionary. Many thanks, Mr. Alan Cock!
This is a fabulous piece of gutteridge art, or gutterart as we in the business like to call it.This serves both ends of human needs, high culture and basic utility. Excellent job Philine.
Philine: The whole week is dedicated to the gutteridge "serving both ends of human needs". Thank you kindly, Chad! You should not miss Thursday's picture. (Seriously, we SC'rs should publish a photo book about English gutterart. Our motto is Oscar Wilde's saying: 'We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.'wink
Chad likes every image of gutteridge I think.
That is quite an inventive bit of pipeage isn't it.
