Re: A Market and More in Nürnberg

PHeymont ·
Spent a few visits to Nürnberg when I was stationed in Augsburg with the US Army. A large PX was located in Furth which is adjacent to Nürnberg. We also loved the local market here and in most German towns and villages. The Christmas market was spectacular.

Re: A Market and More in Nürnberg

PHeymont ·
I was actually in N ürnberg several times while in high school at Heidelberg American High School...but the only things I think I actually saw were our Army bus and the gym of the Nürnberg American High School...missed opportunities! As a family, we stayed clear of the 'golden ghetto' in our travels, but for school activities... Looks, from your picture to mine, as if the market hasn't changed much!

Re: Vienna's Naschmarkt: 500 years of food

PHeymont ·
It is a great market. I've only visited it once, and it's enormous and hard to get your head around, although there is a fair bit of repetition among the stalls. There are several excellent restaurants at the market. I've forgotten the name of the place, but there was a southeastern Asian restaurant that we ate at which provided us with one of the best meals we ate in Vienna, a city known for its great food. One of the Austrians at a table beside us began a conversation and told us he...

Re: France: Baking up a fight over bread and hours

In a free market, workers hours are never reasonable. If Pierre the Baker wont work a 14 hour day - then there are a million immigrants who will. Europeans you can work a maximum of 48 hours a week.

Re: Chinese jetmaker beats out Boeing for order

It will be interesting to see if they can really break into that market! So far, there have been repeated delays on the C919, and the prototype is not yet completed to make its first flight. On the other hand, they have booked 500 orders from Chinese regional airlines, and now have their first foreign customer. Incidentally, COMAC had an interesting partner in developing the specifications for the plane: Ryanair. Ryanair isn't committed to buy anything, but they did help COMAC understand...

Re: Name Your Favorite Restaurants for Atmosphere, Past or Present

Travel Rob ·
For the sake of the memory I'm going to add another place here where I had possibly the best meal of my life. I cannot tell you the name of it or if it had a name or even where it is exactly, somewhere along the country road between Jinghong (Yunnan, China) and the Burma border. I'd hired a guide/driver to take me to the tribal market, famous in those parts, and on the way back suggested we stop for lunch. I'm one of those who believe regional Chinese is the best food in the world and this...

Re: Hotel-Malls; Shop 'til You Drop

It's hard for me to imagine liking shopping that much. To the point I can't leave the mall and have dinner and a night's sleep somewhere else. But to each his own. It must meet a consumer demand in that market, so more power to them!

Re: Spotted on the Road in Sweden

PHeymont ·
Rather than a true kit car this may be a re-body of a production car. In some ways it resembles a Fiat 500 or 600 from the 1960s. Many companies made replacement bodies for these and other small cars. This could also be a modified Fiat Jolly body sans windshield and roof. The Jollys were Ghia re-bodies of Fiat 500s and 600s.. Many other coachwork builders also supplied after-market bodies. This is one that I haven't seen before.

Re: Tampa Bay Automobile Museum: 4) the French cars

DrFumblefinger ·
Truly this is a great car museum; I like this wonderful French car collection. I am looking to buy the 1952 DeLaHaye 235 car, but I am bit worried whether we will get their performance parts on the market or not. Though I have explored the salvage yard of sites like sturtevantauto.com , buyusedengine.com etc. but couldn’t find the specific model here. Can you please guide me on this?

Re: Wednesday Market, Saint-Remy-de-Provence

PHeymont ·
Thanks! The produce was great, indeed. The apartment was also fine; a nice bedroom and living room with kitchenette in a building I believe Is 18th century but modernized. Two flights up, with an air conditioner, washer, dryer and a view directly into the market, and across to the main church in town. It’s two steps off the boulevards, inside the old town. For anyone who’s interested, here’s a link: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/883140 . It's listed at 40€ a night.

I've heard that- when visiting Japan - its best to have photo's on your phone to show people when asking directions. The Bus - Train - Airport - Beach - Drugstore - Market. Interesting read Rob. What are the rules for socialising in the evening ? Bars - Disco - Restaurants - Dress up and stay away from the Karaoke ? Is this part expensive ?

Nice phototour, PM! Interesting as the home and plumbing are, I love your photos of grass best.

Maybe someday we'll need to do a post on just plain old grass. I, too, love Portland.

Re: Gumbo’s Pic of the Day, February 20, 2015: Postcards from Morocco - orange juice vendors

Another unusual practice that came as quite a shock. Not one that you or I will suffer I think Mac. My daughter has long natural blonde hair. And every male in the market wanted to stroke it. I told them a firm NO ... but they insisted. And the line to touch her increased. So our day in the market was cut short.

Re: Granville Island Market, Vancouver. 1) The Produce

Completely agree, Garry! Can't beat the quality of food from a Farmer's Market. Besides all the lovely produce, there are dozens of food vendors will to cook you breakfast, lunch or dinner, or make that cup of latte or glass of lemonade. Great place to spend a morning!

Re: Coastal California: Pigeon Point Lighthouse

When I lived in So California, an acquaintance was an avocado farmer. He informed us that at the time about 10% of the avocado crop was stolen each year -- probably higher now. The most stolen crop in America, and impossible to trace I love old lighthouses and their setting on the roughest places on the coast. Thanks for sharing this one with us, PM.

Re: JetBlue knows treating people well pays off in good-will

DrFumblefinger ·
I'm hoping public pressure prevents this from happening. I've never lived in a market that JetBlue served, but would like to fly them sometime. I am very familiar with Southwest which has a very successful business model that includes offering folks slightly larger seats with more legroom, a free checked bag and non-cancellation fees (you get a credit that's good for one year, but no charges for having to change your flight). And they usually are the most profitable airline in the USA.

If you can stay for two lunches, make the next one Restaurant Stephane Derbord on Avenue President Wilson. Take the "surprise" lunch deal; it's 28€ for a 3-course lunch with a Michelin star and the friendliest husband/wife team you could imagine. The menu changes, based on the day's special (tied to the market!) and was heavenly.

Re: Gallery: Les Halles, Dijon, France

Love the market!!! I'm a big fan of French wine and cheese. What time of year did you visit Dijon? Also curious about the Canal walk. Was that sort of a "room" to "room" walk? Did you carry a backpack? How did your gear travel with you? How far did you go every day and how many days was the walk? Thanks for this piece.

Re: Mercado de San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina

My first experience of a "Spanish" style market was in Menorca. A small island off the east coast of Spain. The Island of soldiers and cows the locals called it. We had our kids with us as we went around the market square calling at each of the butchers shops. None had steak for sale - but would have plenty at 3pm ! So we returned at 2:45pm. We could hear the excitement but there was no one there. A few minutes later a bull was dragged into the marble floored market square. Kicking and...
