On my day off this week i went to Bern. To my surprise, it’s a really small town for a capital. I was used to London, Athens or even Bucharest – huge cites for their countries. Maybe that’s why i liked it so much here…
The day started really nice: i woke up and i saw the sun shining on the mountain near the moon.
After that, i got on the train and i was off to Bern. And the trip was mind-blowing because i went from white to green. From snow to grass. I walked trough the old city all day long on the street with the old fountains, got to see the bears, and went for lunch in the rose garden. And that reminded me of Timisoara in a way. It was nice. Then i went to the communication museum, and i really enjoyed that although it was probably aimed for a much lower age group. Pictures of all this are here. Right after the moon in the morning photo.
I also got to see the famous Bern clock tower at 12 sharp so i made a quick movie:
After all that, i went for a bit of shopping and now i can boast my first mammoth (this could also be considered a sequel to My First Paw then). It’s a pair of long pants that turn into short pants if needed. Really nice for spring-autumn.
Then, i met up with Salvador. Or at least i was supposed to – because in a true latino style he was a bit late. But, while i waited i managed to take a short film of the kids playing in the fountain:
When Salvador finally arrived we went to see a movie – I Love You Phillip Morris – that i very much recommend to everybody. The movie was hilarious, and the best part about it is that it really happened in real life in Texas back when W. Bush was governor – a gay con-artist that keeps getting in and out of jail by all means, even going so far as to frame his own death by AIDS. :))
