The history of Switzerland and how it came into existence, how the Swiss guards are in the Vatican, and how it somehow escaped the brunt of what many other European countries endured during ww2 is fascinating.
My mom just got here postcard from the visit to the st. gall library, of which, I think the books in it were from 600-800 ad, four hundred years before the three kanton's came to an agreement to help defend each other in the case of turmoil. (If this is incorrect, feel free to write)
So today will be traveling to some picnic events and then tonight, the kids will all go nuts with the one day of the year where fireworks appear to be legal.
I was trying to digitally build a birthday cake with 823 candles on it, but I will just do some simplification of the Swiss flag for the photo that you can click on and be taken to a Wikipedia page that gives a brief idea of how it works.
I will go eat some cheese and see if I can score a St. Gallen "Olma" bratwurst. I was almost deported two years ago when i asked, "Do you have some mustard?"
Thankfully, when they found out i was American, they ignored my ignorance, gave me a brat and educated me that in this area of Switzerland, you don't need anything on the brat. they are that good.
Have a great day.
