They Tried to Make Me Go to Rehalp

SWITZERLAND | Friday, 3 Jul 2015 | Views [595]

One thing I like to do when I travel is ride tram, and subway lines to interesting sounding stops.  I saw a streetcar headed to  Rehalp. I had no idea what was there. Of course, Rehalp reminded me of the Amy Winehouse song. I took the 22 minute ... Read more >

Zurich Beautiful

SWITZERLAND | Tuesday, 30 Jun 2015 | Views [397]

Yesterday, I checked out of the YMCA and left Basel. I am glad I did. The YMCA was sort of weird and a pain in the ass-and it has nothing to do with the big black guy who  basically slept next to me for one night-which he did.  There was a ... Read more >

Final sprinkle of Basel

SWITZERLAND | Monday, 29 Jun 2015 | Views [341] | Comments [1]

SWITZERLAND | Saturday, 27 Jun 2015 | Views [359]

Yesterday was my first full day in Basel, Switzerland.  Like most places I have visited, I didn't know what was here. I knew there was a large arts festival. Simply because Arts Basel Miami is a giant arts festival in Miami held each winter.  ... Read more >
