I'm now in Basel, Switzerland, visiting Siew Boon's sister.
It was cold here but not unbearably cold.
Basel is a small quiet city, very few cars on the road and trams still ply the roads.
We walked the town in like half a day.
The swiss speaks English and so getting around is not a problem.
Will be visiting Luzern next, going just to spend half a day there so that we will be back in Basel by evening. Afterall, we are visiting Siew Hoon, so it will be good if we spend some time with her.
