Before my Swiss trip, my wife told me in very clear terms that I must visit at least 1 marketplace. Its something that we will do when we visit any new place as that is where one can find oddities that are unique to a place. Not to mention lovely food which we are both passionate about :)
I wish could bring back the cheese, bread, olives & more chocolate! But limited luggage space (actually limited budget is closer to the truth) I had to come home almost empty handed. There's always next time & with wifey along, the food budget will be at least 60% of total allocation.
My friend Azahari isn't quite into the whole cheese movement yet heheh
The items that were much cheaper there even after converting into Ringgit were the strawberries & cherries. We had a field day with those 2 items.
I leave the beautiful scenes below of Basel's market & river to do the talking ;)
