Nach Basel


All the AFSers were headed to Basel... so naturally I had to impose mysefl upon them.


Me and Kristen and Amarette (Rotary Representatives :P) Joined us to head to the more so Northwestern Area of Switzerland.


Basel... sounds like an herb eh?


Bahhh-Sellll


That`s right! Say it out loud. You know you want to.


Anyways, we had around a 1.5 hour, I think, hour train ride to our lovely town of Basel.


Lots of pics.


You all know me.. so naturally I will be vain and put up pics of myself. But trust me, I have hundreds more. Cause that is just how life lives...




See Mom? I am still as normal as ever.


We arrived in Basel... it was one sweeeet train ride. So beatiful!


And I was quite sick that entire day and felt like crap.


Anyways... Amarette, of Bernish areas, met up with us there.



We decided to catch a tram.



While the AFS folks bought tickets, I was amused with the pigeons.



And we went to the Market Platz.



I really can not pull off sunglasses.. I felt like a bug.


Bern is the best place for shopping.


Me and Amarette and Kristen went to a Kebab place (where else?) for lunch and ate by the Rine.. Rhyme, Rhyne. I don`t know how to spell it.



Then we took a ninja cool boat ride across the water where we saw the AFS kids again.


The boat dude sang for me!



And then we went shopping, of course, and I wish I had more money. Sigh. What a life. So many clothes. I found many items.. I ended up buying one shirt.


They picked out this shirt for me to try on.. sadly, it was not in my stupid stupid budget. But I don't think it would have kept me warm this winter. So I had to take a picture of it and let that be enough for me.



Happy?


And we hung out at some fountain for a while.


It was overall a wonderful day... I should write more but it is 2:50 at night. I normally go to bed at 10:00... but tonight I am blogging a bit to get that out of the way way way. Cause it is in my head and I must get it out. For me. For you. For my foot.
