Madonna in a boat.. sorry but it really does get my attention. Nice Benz wagon!
In Quebec one of the favourite variations on this idea is to use an old cast iron bath tub of the claw foot variety in place of the bateau we're seeing here

Yeah, this is probably my favorite religious shrine for miles and miles around. I never see anyone here, though. I think pilgrims in Pt. Reyes Station are more attracted by the food offerings (oysters, cheese, etc).

So, is it illuminated? I see what appears to be a solar panel and a light back there.

I like the little bit of the boat reflection in the puddle as well. :)

I think it must be, but I haven't been in that town at night for years. This was about 7:30AM, and may as well have been night. I wanted breakfast, and nothing is open that early.

OMG! My all-time favorite car! So rare these days, even in Germany.

A beauty!!!

You have excellent taste in cars! I'd be quite happy to drive one of these, too.

Thanks, and congratulations to your taste as well. :) It's one of my dreams to buy one of these upon my return to Germany. In fact, I was very to close to buy the W123 sedan a couple of years ago, and I didn't do it, which probably was a right decision. However, the T model is a class of itself and as tempting as ever for me.

I could use this car as a shrine. For me, I mean.

If I was you, I would avoid Christian infested places, especially at night.

What about Paris? Will it be safe at night? I'm going there this summer.

I suppose that the national-catholic hordes are back into their stoups, now.

Where else can I pray for a good Mercedes mechanic?

Christer Strömholm has done an excellent photo book of some of your previous Parisian nocturnal adventures. I think it's quite safe.

During the late 70s and early 80s I the used 123 T Models, the 3.0 Diesel 5-cyl , for express press transports, from Munich to Paris and from Paris to Cologne. They were great long distance performers, but in winter times I felt more safe in a Citrorn CX Break. The fearless days of thunder and glory! ;-)

Not to mention cheaper gasoline.

I don't suppose you photographed along the way while doing those press transports? That would make a really interesting archive to dig through, if they exist.
