Here is a handheld shapshot taken along the river banks of the Rhein during dusk yesterday evening: When I moved to Basel many years ago, some of my conversations went like this: Nchenga at Chiperoni.ch: I really like Basel. It’s got a lot of cultural events, museums, cinemas for a city of this size. It’s …
I followed another recommended walk from the little yellow booklet, published by the Swiss heritage society. This time I headed to Murten to see the city wall. It was snowing quite heavily. The lake was invisible in grey clouds. But still fun. Especially with a cup of hot chocolate.

Stopped by at the Swiss TV blog for the very first time, and do you know what: “es hudlet”, “es chuutet”, “es strääzt” oder “es chunnd ganz schöön cho schütte” Looks like I’ll need to learn more Swiss German dialect to find out what kind of weather’s being forecast for tomorrow.
