Hot summer day

Our final stop, it was almost lunch when we finished off Marktplatz and the surrounding streets, which were mainly for shopping purposes. We were hungry and my parents wanted to eat something Asian, and we found just the right shop for it.

Their menu is arranged in a series of different daily dishes. You have three choices according to each day, with one of them being a vegetarian dish and one very spicy dish. It would be best that you could memorize the dishes according to the day. You wouldn’t want to be there on a Tuesday when the dish you want is served on Fridays.

After lunch, we had a walk around the area as we headed towards the Spielzug Welten Museum Basel.

“The what?”

“Toy Museum. All 4 stories of them.”

There was a small park near the entrance of the museum, that gave us a view of Elizabethkirche.

Unfortunately, they don’t allow photography inside the museum. And if you’re bringing in your cameras, you must hang them in front of you. Nowadays with the GoPro, maybe they will rethink the ruling. Inside the museum which was four stories high, you get to see a vast collection of toys, ranging from dolls to miniature cars, wooden toys to woolen toys, you name it they have it. Things that have been lost to time due to the fact that we’re now technology orientated. The toys are arranged in dioramas and that proves that much thought have been given to the layout rather than just displaying them.

It was almost 5 when we finished the museum. A quick tram ride and we are back at the Basel train station, in time to catch our ICE to Frankfurt Airport.

Goodbye Switzerland! See you in Frankfurt!
