I love love Trier

Trier is the oldest city in Germany. It was founded in 16th BC. Wow! I was totally stunned when I read about Trier. The same like the other European cities, Trier also has different names:
in French is Trèves, Luxembourgish is Tréier, Spanish is Tréveris, and Latin is Augusta Treverorum.

Trier is a city with very strong Roman influences, the old remains from the Roman Empire of Constantine I are everywhere; Porta Nigra, Keiserthermen (Roman baths), coliseum, amphitheater, Konstantika Basilica and so on.

I was there on Easter, to get rid of the weather in Aachen. We drove through Liege, Belgium, but really we should have appreciated the weather in Aachen, cos in Belgium, the weather was really hell. It was snowing and they don't put salt on the highway to obviate car accidents.

So, yeah back to Trier again. Nicolas, Janath (my new Indian friend) and I drove to Trier by car. It was so funny, as long as we were in Germany, the weather was sunny, and we drove back to Belgium, it was totally hell.

I was pretty blond that I didn't charge my camera, so I only took some pictures, the rest is on my head. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrggg ........................

I am gonna go back again in summer :D

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
