My flight through the night gave some splendid views of northern Canada.
Upon arrival in Frankfurt, I quickly headed anywhere that would sell me a bretzel. Best move ever.
I boarded my connecting flight to Basel a short time later. The Basel airport straddles the borders of France, Germany, and Switzerland. I had been pre warned to make sure I choose the correct exit.
I was met by Lea and we began adventuring!
First stop was the university tropical arboretum.
This bird is for Miki. I have no idea what species it is.
This is a cacao tree. It has one very ripe pod.
This bird is also for Miki. And anyone into blue stuff.
This is a dangly flower.
This is an uppity flower.
The next one is hibiscus.
Next we went to city hall. I tried to take a photo of the moon. I failed.
I got the moon in the next one though, taken from inside the city hall courtyard.
I took another photo of the moon at a cathedral.
Then Lea and I went for beer and played with blocks.
Our towers got more and more ambitious, eventually including anything nearby.
Eric joined us for dinner and then I passed out in the middle of the conversation planning for tomorrow. Sleep time.
