Around Siselen

The second part of our mission took place in Siselen, Switzerland.
After a delay in Cardiff, Nelly and I flew to Amsterdam. We had to make a mad dash
to catch our plane to Basel, France. We made the flight, but our suitcase did not.
Alois met us in Basel around 11:30 PM, and drove us to his home in Siselen.
We were in Switzerland from the late evening of 12 April to the morning of the 18th.
We spent Thursday tracking down our suitcase. It was flown from Basel
to Paris and to Zurich, and then driven to Siselen.
Not a bad place to pass the time!

Such a lovely garden!
Such delicious treats in Siselen

Our luggage finally arrived on Friday afternoon, and we were free to go out.
We drove to Murten to see the lake and village that share that name.
