One of Basel's highlights is the Rhine Bridge that overlooks the Rhine river. From the bridge you can see the city... very picturesque. In the old town of Basel you can find very elegant houses that go back to the Baroque period. There is also a beautiful cathedral called Münster. Jessica and I spent some time wondering through here... it had an outdoor area that was incredible.. i will try and add photos of this later.
Throughout the city you can find little bistro's everywhere. People enjoy sitting outdoors.
Ice cream (gelato's) are sold in almost every restaurant or bistro.
In the afternoon Jessica and I sat by one of the museums and fed bread to the most adorable little birds. The birds were not afraid of us.. we almost had them eating out of the palm of our hands.. We had such a good time doing this.. i think we sat there for 2 hours... we met some cool people from Africa and chatted with them for a while.
In the evening on a monday there is not too much to do here.. so we went to see the movie Wedding Planner.. it was in English.. with german and french subtitles. This is one hilarious movie.. You must see it. In the middle of the movie there was a break.. Jessica and i thought this was sooo funny... everyone got up to go to the toilet or grab a snack.. She said they dont do this in Germany.. it was interesting!
We are leaving tomorrow for Zurich.. getting excited!
