sampling Basel

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.
image

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.
image

This is a cacao tree. It has one very ripe pod.
image

This bird is also for Miki. And anyone into blue stuff.
image

This is a dangly flower.
image

This is an uppity flower.
image

The next one is hibiscus.

image

Next we went to city hall. I tried to take a photo of the moon. I failed.

image

I got the moon in the next one though, taken from inside the city hall courtyard.
image

I took another photo of the moon at a cathedral.

image

Then Lea and I went for beer and played with blocks.
image

Our towers got more and more ambitious, eventually including anything nearby.
image

Eric joined us for dinner and then I passed out in the middle of the conversation planning for tomorrow. Sleep time.
