Photographer's Note

Just got back from a two-day trip to Strasbourg with my students association. We went to see the European Parliament and the European Courth of Human Rights.

Strasbourg is the seat of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights, the European Ombudsman and the European Parliament, though the latter also holds sessions in Brussels. Every year the whole European Parliament moves from Brussels to Strasbourg to meet again -just in another location. This 'change' costs up to almost 200 million euro's each year (yeah, it's the reason we pay taxes, to have these people move from one office to another and back - echt year).

But then again the building is kinda nice I think.

-photo might occur a bit blurry due to resizing the image, will try to re-post the larger version.
