Yesterday: Waldkirch and Riegel
There is snow on the Alps, and there are a few flakes falling here in Bern today. I started the day off by getting lost: I walked right off my map without even leaving the Bern Bahnhof!
The Zytglogge is one of Bern's great landmarks
Lunch was an excellent creamy barley soup with bacon, a salad, and pork schnitzel with pasta and mushroom gravy for CHF17.50 ($14.35).
Restaurant Felsenau, Bern
Felsenau Lager Hell, CHF3.80 / $3.12 for a 10.1-ounce glass
Felsenau Bärner Weizenbier, CHF5.50 / $4.50 for a half-liter bottle
Felsenau Bärni Dunkles Spezialbier, CHF4.90 / $4.00 for an 11.2-ounce bottle
The skies had been cloudy all the time, but they cleared enough this evening that I could catch this nice arrangement of the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter over our hotel.
Back in Basel, we met Paris' colleague Marco and his charming wife Paloma for dinner at the Pinguin for beers and dinner (in that order).
Tomorrow: Kenzingen and Lörrach
