Never underestimate the value of clean clothes
Today has been one of the best days so far. Sabine is an absolutely delightful human being and so easy to be around. We spent the day walking around Bern old town and along the river to the bear pit. We stopped and had a light lunch before tackling the rest of the city.
The weather is sunny and warm which Sabine informs me was not the case just 3 days ago.
We also managed to get ALL our clothes washed to a more acceptable standard than handwashing in hotel sinks.
That evening, Sabine cooked us a traditional Swiss dinner of Raclette - basically it's melted cheese over potatoes and meat and salad etc etc - anyway, it was really really delicious. Another dinner guest was Suzanne who was a fascinating lady born in Peru and working in Switzerland as an artist and a clown.
