|Strasbourg and the cathedral|
Then we noticed people heading in one direction so decided to follow to see what was going on. We all (thousands of people) stood in the open area around the cathedral for a while - we had no idea why - and then the lights illuminating the cathedral went out and a half hour of laser artistry began. It was an astonishing creation, lights, moving pictures, shapes, colours and history all carefully choreographed to music and the shape of the cathedral. We found out later that it was to celebrate 1000 years years of the history of the cathedral. My photos can't do justice to how beautiful it was.
