|This place is 5 minutes from my home and it's wedged|
between a bunch of shops and restaurants. It has
given me ideas for what to plant in our city garden.
|I love walking along the Rhine River! This is the water taxi|
that takes you from one side to the other.
Gin and Vermouth took it with their German teacher
during German Boot Camp lessons—
it's 3CHF (per person) - one way
|I like walking along the Rhine River and looking across at|
the Medieval city part of Basel.
|From what I have been told, many people swim in |
the Rhine when the weather gets warmer.
I thought that the shower was interesting; I guess the Swiss
don't want you smelling like Rhine when you get back
on the tram.
|I pass by this fence towards the end of my walk along|
the Rhine River. It reminds me of Fasnacht
- the Carnival celebration here.
|And this is by far the most interesting thing I have come|
across on my walks - a cigarette vending machine
WITH an ID verification! You can't buy your cigarettes
until you past your ID card through first.
And lastly ... good news! Olive arrives this Thursday; she's coming to visit because it's Vermouth's birthday this weekend. Olive came 2 years ago for Gin's 16th birthday celebration and she made a promise to come for Vermouth’s. Haven’t made too many plans yet but you can count on some yarn shopping – I have found 4 yarn shops so far in this city. The latest one I found happens to be 2 doors down from a Starbucks. I found it last Sunday while out walking with The Shaker. And I just want to make it clear that it was his suggestion to go to Starbucks. Can I help it if I found another yarn shop for Olive and I to check out???
