Holiday in Alsace #11/12 – Gallery shots of Colmar and Keysersberg


Original playout date: 4 December 2007
Duration: 7:43

There was me thinking nobody is ever going to be bothered over property rights for a song form Armenia called Pnjlik Mnjlik by a gent called Arsen Grigoryan. How wrong I was, the video has got a claim but fair play to Arsen it plays on. He gets all the money because we all know only the music is important in a video, not the image, that’s why it’s called video, but OK. Better than the vandalism I suffered on many of my vids and then got called on copyright for the “free” tune anyway, a little later.

Agent de YouTube Uncle Davey takes Sophie up Monkey Moutain in Alsace, which is a rhesus monkey enclosure and Sophie has a nice time feeding them.

It’s a bit scary really the way she comes right up to them. Thankfully they are not so aggressive and usually will warn prior to biting like most animals.

Chateaux Drive


Châteaux of the Loire Valley

The big picture - we only saw a handful of the total available!

Occasionally these blog posts will contain more than one video – especially if the video is one item which was split up into separate items as this day chasing chateaux in the Loire Valley was split up in order to keep them on HD in YouTube.

They are all one day out, and they can best be enjoyed from beginning to end as one piece, hence putting them into a single post.

I don’t always do this, but sometimes I just feel like it.

OK, so here are the videolinks in order of their appearance:

Enjoy!
