An American in Europe

Basel, Sunday, Dec. 6 - The Emergence of Claude –

Like Saturday, Sunday got off to a late start. Click ``read more’’ to see photos of my last day in Schweiz.

This is the government building, Rathaus

The city has many beautiful old buildings. The country was spared the bombing that destroyed many historical buildings during World War II.

Wünschen ist positive, Wünschen ist optimistisch, Wünschen ist kreativ . . .
I wrote a wish in the big wish book!

What did I wish for? That’s between me, Michele and the thousands of people who read the wish book. ;)

We ate hot chestnuts! My first time eating them!!

Look who showed up! This is Claude and he got taller!
And he baked cookies!! (His first time, ever.) They were vegan, and good!

Andreasplatz!!! That’s mein platz! (Ok, so I really wanted to see it. But it was near one of Michele’s hangouts in college too!)

And time to take AJ back to the airport

My plane was delayed an hour! By the time we landed in London, all public transportation had stopped running. So I was stuck at Luton Airport about one hour outside the city. But a really awesome British girl gave me a lift back to town and dropped me off at my door! (It helps to talk to and take rides with strangers.) The girl’s housemate text-messaged her, ``Please can we kidnap the American and keep her as a pet? Please?’’

Anyway, thanks to the kindness of a stranger I got home at midnight! And yes, I still showed up at 6 a.m. at Bloomberg the next day!

Love me =)
