Thanks to my 2-year old neighbour, who is now 3, I have become a big fan of “night walks.” He and I have enjoyed flaneuring the streets and back alleys of our neighbourhood since he was just over a year old, but last September he started wanting to go for walks after dinner with his Papa and I got invited.
I had never appreciated how different residential streets are in the evening. It is a great way to wind down and reflect on the day's happenings.
I loved these walks so much I started to do my own “night walks” when on vacation in other cities. Most recently, my “night walks” were along the historic streets and canals of Leipzig Germany which take on an entirely different look at night.
Here are a few postcards from Leipzig at night…hope you enjoy.
