And we're off

Or we will be, shortly.

This will be our 6th consecutive Fasnacht in Basel, Switzerland. And the weather reports say that we will be arriving during snow, and that the snow will continue till we depart, and the temperature may not rise above freezing the entire time, so it's going to be a cold, white Fasnacht this time.

Sadly, dduane and Peter WINOLJ can't make it this year — a shame, since they introduced us to it. And evilshell, who we are still yet to meet, has fled Basel for London for a few days.

But we've made arrangements to pop over and see zeni and faris_eirin in Zurich on Tuesday, so we won't be entirely on our own. On Thursday, we intend to ascend the Jungfraujoch (but the easy way - by train). And then,on friday, it's back to Basel to fly, via Stansted, to Dublin for P-Con, where we will see dduane and Peter, and slovobooks and gmhclanwilliam and a whole lot of others.

We may go quiet for a few days, though.
