Barely 45 minutes later, we were in the French Department of Alsace.
Most of the intervening period, we spent in the Swiss Canton of Basel Stadt.
Three different countries, 2 different currencies, 2.5 different languages (Basler Deutsch isn't exactly Hocht Deutsch).
Dinner tonight we had to cook ourselves, despite having gone out to eat. Thankfully, each table had a hot plate grill in its centre.
