No. 6: The capital (Swiss Top Ten)

Berne is the Swiss capital, and it's just so nice. Just small enough to be quaint, just big enough to not be totally boring, just international enough not to make one go insane, German-speaking with a hint of French...and a great place to live! The old town is a UNESCO world heritage site and is one of the best examples of medieval architecture in the world. We sort of miss living there, although we really aren't far away (what's 20 minutes by US standards??). It's currently my very favorite Swiss city....

no, I have not chopped off my hair! I had to pull it back because it was so unruly. :-)

Zytglogge and one of many famous fountains in the old town.

hazy view from up...

view of part of the old town and the Aare river from a bridge.

Gerechtigkeitsgasse...the oldest street in the oldest part of the old town. Nice for strolling and window shopping.

it is just all too scenic for me to really compute.
