Thanks for the info. We have a few streets here (Houston) that are cobblestone. Some are original, dating back to the 1800's, and some have just been laid during the refurbishing of our downtown. The greater majority of our streets are asphalt or something that looks like asphalt. What amazes me about your city is that it seems that the greater majority of the pictures you've shared so far are cobblestone. The are quite beautiful, well preserved, expensive and the result of a lot of hard labor and patience. Maybe there is some city resolution that no asphalt will be used?

It's the Jumanji house! I don't think I'd like to live here for fear I'd be choked by this vine.

Thanks for all the stuff you're doing in preparation for the European meet up. Look forward to meeting you then.

Think of the usage of cobblestones as the predecessor to asphalt. It was just another way to make streets way back when.
It seems to have been a common practice throughout
at one point and time.

The history of your streets still intrigues me. I have done a search but can find nothing.
