Sunday, 30 November 2008: Finally arrived in Basel

Yesterday: Off to Basel

After yesterday's merry-go-round of aircraft changes, we finally made it to Paris late this morning. En route, I got to try a can of Nigerian Star lager, which wasn't too bad.

We got through the rat's maze that is Charles de Gaulle in time to catch a flight to Zürich earlier than the one we had re-rebooked. We even had time for a couple Affligem de Noël.

This airport is the O'Hare of the EU. In fact, I've determined that the French words Charles de Gaulle translate to the English word clusterfuck.

But we did get to Zürich, and from there took a train to Basel, and we checked into the hotel at 5:30pm, exactly 27 hours after we left home yesterday. So much for a quick pub crawl in Germany this afternoon.

Tomorrow: Waldkirch and Riegel am Kaiserstuhl
