Kachelofen

image

This is an example of what I think is a Kachelofen which I saw on Monday night in Winzerhaus in Zurich.

A yellow duck

image

I think it’s a good omen to find one of these in the bath.

The Rhine River

image

This was taken at sunset earlier.  Here the river forms the border between Switzerland and Germany.

Update:
The smoke rising on the right bank of the river is from a power plant in the municipality of Full Reuenthal, in the canton of Aargau, Switzerland. On the left bank is the village of Dogern which is part of the administrative district of Freiburg in Germany.

The right way to wash your

image


When I was in Switzerland recently I noticed this sign in the men’s room at my client’s site. I never established whether the same advice was offered to women. This is something that I wondered about decided not to ask.

Grey day in Basel

image

As I enjoy a lovely sunny Autumn day in England today I can look back at the bleak and grey photos from last week in Basel and smile.

It wasn’t me!

image

Someone has left their initials on this electricity box, which also sports a faded and worn poster protesting against people trafficing and prostitution.

Spotted the other night in downtown Basel.

Basel bicycle

image

I thought this was a somewhat quaint & retro bicycle, with its bespoke leather carry-bag, dynamo on the front wheel to power a light, and carrier-bag saddle cover to keep the seat dry.

Devilish sign

image

I was working in Basel this past week, and I spotted a lot of graffiti in public places. Besides for the depressingly grey weather and the efficient trams the place didn’t really remind me of the Basel I had visited a few years ago. There were even stickers with graffiti designs plastered on walls and signposts.
