    I'm embarrassed to post a picture my of city(ies). A pop. of 370,000 with 13 kingdoms(municipalities); a total of 96 municipal politicians(mayors & councillors) with a 24 member board appointed to the CRD(Capital Regional District)(I tag it as the Communist Regional District) from each of the 13 kingdoms. The squabbles the politicians have on the municipal level, which is mostly nimbyism(not in my backyard) bring it the CRD board. Nothing gets done on many levels.

    Carlisle isn't particularly stunning, but we do have a castle:

    It's not a particularly stunning castle.

    You Are welcome!
    The photo is taken at "The Tall Ships Race" 2014, and it is held here in Esbjerg again this year (2018) in June. And I'll be there! There will be ships and people from all corners of the world. It is 4th time it is held here.

    Quite intriguing, I like Alot


    I've read much about the ol motte and bailey, but that castle seems rather stern.

    Very nice Pic! :Hmm:

    The pic is one of a few I took myself. You can see a few more, not mine but better, together with the castle's history, here:

    It is quite old, and we also sit on the western end of Hadrian's Wall, which is a little bit older :)
