All Things Swiss
We were in Basel over the weekend, enjoying the bise (a very cold wind from Siberia) and taking in a few sites, notably the Tinguely Museum.If you need any further evidence that the Swiss are just a bit odd, take note that two of its most celebrated artists are HR Giger and Jean Tinguely.Tinguely created pieces that are kinetic, noisy, and wonderfully bizarre.This was my second visit to the museum, which was built and designed specifically for the TInguely collection, and I would return again.You can watch the displays or if that becomes a little overwhelming, watch the other patrons. Here's a video to give you an idea:

We caught the train home this morning and found a little snow had fallen while we were gone.(and a couple of lonely kitties)
