We left Zurich the next morning to visit a tiny little country in between Switzerland and Austria called Liechtenstein. The country is 26 x 6 km and their major export is false teeth. Fascinating. We had to take a train and a bus to get there because they have neither a train station nor an airport. On the bus ride their you could of literally blinked and missed the capitol of the country. We stayed in the only hostel which backed up to a large corn field and was in the middle of nowhere. We explored the downtown area which took about 20 minutes. We first went to the modern art museum, which was a really cool building, but learned that you had to pay to see the one exhibit. Since we didnīt really enjoy modern art enough to pay to be confused, we headed to the Post museum. Apart from dentures, this little country had a thing for stamps. The museum houses every stamp the country has ever made. It was really cool to see all the stamps and how they have changed since 1936. After our romp around Valduz, we headed back to the hostel to do laundry. I have to admit that this place was pretty remarkable. Everyone we met was extremely friendly and helpful and the country was beautifully situated between two large mountain ranges. It would of been nice to spend another day there, except I wouldnīt know what to do.
