I Was Also in Bern

  • It was rainy.
  • Pretty city, though.
  • One hears it’s possible to see the Alps from there.
  • Also, just happened to run into Dave and Rahel from Pittsburgh 7th, who were in Basel visiting her parents for the holidays.
  • Had rösti at the restaurant by the bear pit.
  • The bears weren’t viewable, though. Hibernation I guess. Bears.
  • Rösti seems like it should be a breakfast food.
  • Swiss German remains unintelligible.
  • The Zürich airport is super nice.
  • Many things in Switzerland are expensive. A Whopper value meal at the airport, for instance, costs about US$20.
