Kazimierz – the district south of the Old Town between the Wisła River and ul. Dietla (where a tributary of the Wisła once flowed) was the centre of Jewish life in Kraków for over 500 years, before it was systematically destroyed during World War II. In the communist era it became one of Kraków’s dodgiest districts while gradually falling into disrepair. Rediscovered in the 1990s, thanks to the fall of the regime and worldwide exposure through the lens of Steven Spielberg, Kazimierz has rebounded and is today Kraków’s most exciting district – a bustling, bohemian neighbourhood packed with historical sites, atmospheric cafes and art galleries. Well-known for its associations with Schindler and Spielberg, traces of Kazimierz’s Jewish history have not only survived, but literally abound in the form of the district’s numerous synagogues and Jewish cemeteries. In fact, no other place in Europe conveys a sense of pre-war Jewish culture on the continent better than Kazimierz. Peeling façades and obscure courtyards hide dozens of bars and cafes, many affecting an air of pre-war timelessness. Centred around the former Jewish square now known as Plac Nowy, Kazimierz has emerged as the city’s best destination for cafe culture and nightlife. Alternative, edgy and packed with oddities, Kazimierz is an essential point of interest to any visitor.

Itzak Perlman plays klezmer:


La Synagogue de La Chaux-de-Fonds. No. 5493.

I found a white heron in shallow water in the afternoon of a strong sunshine. The regular visitor in this shoal, as far as I know, were Blue Herons, White Herons and duck companion.

I think that there was ducks on this day, too. I pressed the shutter when I saw the shadow of a heron there.

"Le monde perdu des Shtetls et du Yiddishland est ramené à la vie par David Bursztein et son quintette instrumental (cymbalum, vibraphone, orgue de barbarie, violon, bandonéon, guitare). Les dibbouks malicieux, bienveillants qui l'inspirent et l'accompagnent, ravivent notre imagination collective par les anecdotes et les chants . "

And here's the biggest treasure discovered at the arts & crafts Christmas market in Bamberg (see my previous shot). The trio stands about 40 cm high and can be purchased for €900. Numerous other artistic creations are crowded into a small display area, accounting for the somewhat chaotic background here. [FUJI5576_lr_2000]


From Wikipedia: "Klezmer is a musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe. Played by professional musicians called klezmorim in ensembles known as kapelye, the genre originally consisted largely of dance tunes and instrumental display pieces for weddings and other celebrations. In the United States the genre evolved considerably as Yiddish-speaking Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, who arrived between 1880 and 1924,[1] met and assimilated American jazz."

"Alive and Then Gone" Opening, Plan B, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada;

On our way out of Croatia, our friends told us to check out the waterfalls at the Krka National Park. Only, when we got there, we found out that we had to pay to get in (even though it was only about $5.00 per person). We were a bit grumpy and tired from not sleeping well the night before, and we were anxious to get on the road. So eventually we decided to flip a coin to see if we would pay or not. Three times heads, and it proved to be one of the most beautiful places on our trip! An hour long board walk with constant running water and waterfalls underneath you, with the occasional panoramic view of some of the larger waterfalls. Also because we were there around the middle of January, we had almost the entire park to ourselves.

Because of the time of year that we went, most of the leaves had fallen off of the trees giving it a possible more beautiful almost Lord of the Rings atmosphere.

I definitely recommend anyone visiting Croatia to visit this national park, no matter what time of year.

On our last day in Rio, we met a friend of a friend to whom we told that we were leaving to Paraty the following morning. Without hardly knowing her, she called her friend living in Paraty and asked if we could stay at his house. Suddenly we had a place to sleep!

Paraty is a beautiful old city with many artists living/working there, however the old stone roads made it almost impossible to pull our carts (amps, instruments and of course our Balcony). But when we finally found the house where we would stay, the man turned out to be a really great artist, and we would sleep in a loft above his gallery. Although he didn’t speak English, he was really nice and invited us to stay as long as we wanted, even though we only had a few days.

That night we went to search for a place where we could play in exchange for dinner, and already the first place we asked said that it wasn’t a need to play since there weren’t any people, but if we wanted we could eat for free anyway!

So we ate a really nice Crepe, and by the time we were finished there were a few more customers, so Johan played a few classical guitar songs as a thank you.

Then suddenly at one of the two tables was a man who liked johan’s music the invited the whole band to play on his tourist boat the following day! So, the next day we played on his boat, got free food, and got to see all the nice beaches in the area.

In order to see a more remote beach, we took a bus to Trindade, a small fishing village nearby. There we met a reggae singer who had grown up there and lived there his whole life. We slept one night at his house, and showed us around the beautiful area. Unfortunately my camera died after meeting him..

Our next stop was the beautiful city of Sighisoara. We arrived here without knowing anything about the city, or having any place to stay. So the first thing that we did was go around and ask cafes, hotels, and hostels if we could give a concert in exchange for either food or a sleeping place. After trying quite a few places and always being denied, we were about to give up when we entered an unlikely chic hotel who gave our offer a second thought. The hotel was Casa Wagner, and it just so happened to be the owner’s wife’s birthday, so they decided to hire us as a surprise act for her party in exchange for both food and a place to sleep. One night turned into one week once we became friends with the owner. He also introduced us to a really great gypsy band in town, Profisonor, and gave us the connections to visit another gypsy village nearby.

That was very dramatic almost scary - we knew that this was going to mean rain, thunder and high winds - we weren't wrong.
