Click “read more” to see photos of Friday in Basel!
Friday afternoon, I left work early to fly to Switzerland!
The fog was so thick that most flights were delayed, but not mine!
The only time I saw sun light all week was when I ascended past the clouds!
When I landed, my cell phone welcomed me to France. Basel is where France, Germany and Switzerland meet! A couple of minutes into the city, and my phone welcomed me to Switzerland!
First, Michele and I had to buy breakfast for the weekend.
Then out on the town. . .
Basel is like Christmas land! So beautiful . . .
The Puppenhouse Museum
The Christmas Market at night
Michele had these shoes when she was small!
The Christmas market again
Here we are! I wanted to ride the pumpkins but we were too big.
We ate at Aladin, an Arabic food restaurant right underneath this bar.
This guitar player had a basket for each thing he wanted to buy. (Clothes, food, apartment.) Some people threw coins in his Mercedes basket!
Cheers! All Bar One
This is Basel’s Time Square, Michele said. Actually she said, ``This is Basel’s Picadilly Circus,’’ which is London’s Times Square. So this is Basel’s Time Square twice removed. So it actually looks nothing like Times Square. Get it?
Behind me are the free public restrooms. You only get fifteen minutes and then the doors automatically open!
Michele spends a lot of time text messaging!
Here’s what you get when you order a rum & coke in Switzerland!!
Funny text message?
Patrick and Mimmy
I love Swiss people! (Sorry to my new friend MF if you read this! Hahaha – I know you find the country useless.)
A sad text message
Here’s Andi and I with an authentic Swiss guy. He knows how to party and dance!
. . . Meanwhile, where's Michele?
Andi said he is very against war, but he sure liked those B52’s!!
The idea of not being able to smoke in a bar:
Michele was saying something about the straws? I have no idea.
Shortly after this picture was taken, I went to sleep at the bar. Hey, you would too if it were 3 a.m. and you had been at work at 6 a.m. the previous morning!
The End of Day 1!
