    The Zurich Caper

    Flights occasionally dip below the cost of train fares, Airbnb makes it easy to get a private room, I don't expect it will last but I'm happy to go while it's there. What I need now are snow shoes.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I'm taking the opportunity afforded by our beneficently gracious government - the week after Christmas is allowed off for all schoolchildren! - to take my youngest to see snow, something he recently described as fictional. Switzerland has lots of snow on account of the Alps, and I found a go-anywhere Swiss Rail cheap-tourist ticket which lets him travel free.

    How can a child in Europe think snow is fictional?

    The Gulf Stream, apparently. He's quite right though, he's not seen snow.

    Re: The Zurich Caper

    Spot is currently in Wipingen according to my latest information. Now that could be Wippingen in Lower Saxony but I'd guess it's Wipkingen in Zurich - it all depends on which letter he left out :-)

    It would also appear that he left out his password list when packing and he's no access at the moment.

    Now, he might be lucky and have snow to prove that it exists but the forecast for the weekend is around ten degrees Celsius (sixty Fahrenheit) so he might have some travelling to do.

    It was -15 centigrade (3 Fahrenheit) with blizzard style falling snow and wind at Jungfrauhoch yesterday afternoon, the boy was disbelieving until we went outdoors in it. Even in Zurich there was an inch fell as we walked from the train to the apartment but that's gone this morning. Today we're hunting cable cars.

    Re: The Zurich Caper

    How might one attach the two parts of the drip tray of an inissia Koenig coffee machine to each other? They appear to be made to swivel or pivot but I don't want to force the plastc.


    ETA

    Ah. Discovered. Now it swivels.

    Definitely spot.

    I'm returned, it's taken a day or two to get back online properly. I'm now here. I might try to find a photo or two.
