|There's something very reassuring about that.|
|Geneva. See what I'm saying?|
|New train station, old church.|
But navigate I did and I took in as much as I could. It, like a lot of the cities I passed, seems to be a combination of to-the-minute modernity and steeped in tradition classics. There aren't a lot of buildings that are built between, say, 1800 and 1980. They're all either glossy and new or very, very old. It makes a beautiful contrast, although some of the smaller towns we passed seem to have been overtaken by Ikeas and other industrial buildings. Seriously. They looked more like a giant robot than a store. But Bern seems to strike a nice balance, although I'll let you know tomorrow after we tour the produce and cheese markets by scooter. Is there anything in the world that I like that isn't in that sentence? Seriously, if I could have Rue with me on the scooter and somehow watch the Nanny at the same time I think I might spontaneously combust with the perfection of it all.
Speaking of things I like (a lot) I promise to post pictures of the ring soon but right now there's a big, Swiss bed calling my name. Literally. I really think I need to go to sleep.
