Bern, Chocolate and Castles



My first Saturday here we explored Bern.  We first went to the outdoor market downtown.  This markets specializes in food (lots of cheese, meats, and bread), flowers, and other stuff (scarves, hats, belts, etc.).  After we walked the entire market we got breakfast at one of the food trucks.  I got a tasty fried apple dish called Apfelküchlein (two weeks later I realized what I had was pineapple).  Yummy.  It is a traditional food of Switzerland.


A Day of Airports and Planes


I left on a Tuesday for my first adventure across the Atlantic.  I spent about 24 hours traveling to my destination.  There was a long layover in Dallas where I spent most of my time playing Bioshock Infinite and chowing down on my last American meal (Qdoba!!!).  Luckily my flights were mostly uneventful.  So uneventful that I slept through the first two flights.
