I arrived home yesterday afternoon ~ tired, but elated from an amazing trip. And with photographs at last! In looking at the pictures from Basel, I was clearly obsessed by all sorts of architectural details ~ windows, doors, street signs. And Basel is full of little details! On my one free afternoon there, I wandered through one of the older neighborhoods on the Rhine called St. Alban. Full of twisting alleyways and little canals, it is home to the 13th-century St. Alban-Kirche, the old Baseler Papiermühle (paper mill), and lots of tidy old Swiss houses. So charming! More images to come in the next few days as I slowly get them downloaded and processed...

Wisteria on the windows of my hotel.
