... the old Bern bridge Very nice and quite hot 25 degrees or so.
Then home for a quick nap and dinner with the whole family, Gabriel has joined us for the evening and is keen to shown us many of his travel pics. Tomorrow he will show us round his favorite places. Cheese and bread and wine for dinner. Swiss wine and cheese of course.
Visited Gabby's digs after dinner and saw his art and travel mementos. Great ...

So, I have officially tried the three main Swiss dishes- racelette, fondue, and roschti....all of which sit in your stomach like lead but are quite delicious (except for the fondue here which is only made with Gruyere cheese which I'm not too crazy about.)
