Indiscreet Neighbours

The antithesis to our discreet neighbours is our nearby bakery.

For readers from the U.S. of A. this might be a humble reference to Christmas. For our culture (which even bans minarets) it's way over the top. Inside the bakery, it's even worse (I did not dare to take pictures there).

Our baker has a passion for American style decoration and American style cars, but unfortunately not for bread. Which is really a pity, since I so like good bread. So I have to walk to further afar and less illuminated places to get my fix.

That does look a little over the top. It looks like they have 12 decorated trees outside - with more in the windows.

Although it doesn't look much different than some houses in my neighborhood. Some blocks seem to have a competition among the neighbors.

Steve will ask me "Is it too early to put up Xmas decoration Honey?"

@NewLeaf... It seems to start here too.

@Suf... as with many things in life, moderation is the key.

So this might be a bit much? :-)

Mr. Urs said...

@Gauss... I might confuse my sleep patterns having this across the street. Especially when it comes with music.

Americans make good bread?
Where??! LOL.

Ok, so we can do some pretty good sourdoughs, and now we've appropriated breads from France, and even Italy, into our country. Things are better than even 10 years ago - "artisanal" bread makes some amazing stuff!!
