Lausanne, December 2010 pt. 2

Bern is Switzerland’s capital, located just an hour away from Basel. Even though it’s the fourth most populated city, it felt a lot smaller than the other cities we’ve visited. The town’s very quaint and we were able to walk from one side to the other fairly quickly, even though the geography of the place was pretty uneven. It’s town center was also deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it was home to Albert Einstein while he was developing one of his theories, so says Wikipedia.

Along the street were many wine-cellar-like staircases that actually lead down to more stores. This one was part of a bookstore, where we found plenty o’ books with gorgeous covers dating back to the 1800’s in pristine condition. Plus the bookstore was having a 50% off sale that day. WURD.

The weather was cold,grey, and drizzly, but it stopped raining eventually
They were having some kind of festival
And all those balloons were released into the sky
First ever Raclette!
We couldn’t find the name of this but it’s basically fried dough. How can you go wrong
Stopped by the Sprügli Tea Room
Passionfruit and champagne deliciousness
Whoever thought of this is my hero. Lemon sorbet and champagne, so classy
Stopped by the Design Museum’s poster collection. The Swiss sure do love their fluorescent colors…
My first design-related publication purchase that wasn’t a requirement
