    Birthday Weekend

    Thursday Night: Doug arrives and we go for a kebab, and watch a rather disappointing piece of "comedy theater" in the middle of Basel.

    Friday morning: off to the Valais for another dose of the L├Âtschberg S├╝drampe. My 4th time down there now and I'm still amazed by the place. I think that Doug rather enjoyed it too.

    Friday Night: Dad arrives for a night's stopover on his way to Chamonix. Four of us enjoy a rather nice meal of marinated tuna steaks, and then out to a couple of small Kleinbasel pubs. Home too late.

    Saturday morning: late-ish start and we get to Andermatt by 11:45. Mixed weather but pretty darn good snow and the 2 or so hours of bright blue skies we got made it well worth the trip.

    Saturday night: out to see DJ Woody at the Kaserne in Basel. A few vodkas were consumed and the drunken (and very bad, on my part anyway) b-boy gymnastics commenced.

    Sunday: fried eggs and ham + fresh croissants + Lavazza coffee

    What a weekend. Still knackered now :-)
