Jet-set or jet lag?

Downtown Berne Well, we finally arrived in Switzerland. Today is the first day we've had off to relax in about two weeks. Whew! I'm still too tired for a nice, coherent blog post, so here are some random lists.

Fun facts about our flight:
  • It took us 35 minutes at the United counter to check in, pay for checking a 5th bag (never again) and explain to the woman at the counter that Mr K had a job and was allowed into the country
  • We had the two middle seats in the very last row of the plane
  • The guy next to me read the Economist, followed by People magazine...
  • Mr K slept about 4 hours on the flight - I slept none
  • We watched Shrek 3
Fun facts about our stay in Bern:
  • By the time our cab got to the hotel from the airport, it smelled like his car was going to explode - possibly from all our luggage
  • Our hotel was way swanky
  • All the TV was in German
  • There were ELEPHANTS outside our hotel when we came back form walking around - they were having a Middle Eastern festival
  • I slept 13 hours the first night - more than the three previous days combined
Fun facts about our stay in Fribourg:
  • Hooray! I got the meet the author of
  • Mr K and I walked over 24,000 steps our first day in fribourg - or over 10 miles... or over 16 km...
  • I have a creepy blister
  • Mr K had a work function and I accidentally slept through the approved dinner time....
  • Trains = cool and scary; buses = confusing and scary
  • Fribourg is really really beautiful and the weather is amazing

Thats all for now - time to wake up Mr K and find some food!

I had to laugh while I read your post! Switzerland is amazing and frustrating place, but still very nice to live in. How about we make together a trip to Bern? I want as well to towl you with me (if you agree) to one of my favourite trift stores in Fribourg, how about that?
Anyway, it's great to have you in Fribourg! See you soon!
