So we are now in Switzerland, hanging out at an internet cafe below a McDonald's. We arrived about 6 PM tonight, so no real Swiss stories yet, but we're working on it. We finished a nice dinner a few minutes ago at Molino's, an Italian restaurant. If you're not aware, there are 3 national languages here in Switzerland. Our …

We coaxed an uninterrupted 20 km out of him the other morning, and his cruising speed is only a little less than what we manage if he hops in Harry and Lou tows his bike.
