Today we took our motor home form the storage. After 7 weeks everything still worked fine. Like this we could go to do shopping and drive to a campground in the suburbs of Las Vegas. Last night we had a room on the 16th floor of a hotel. The picture shows the view from our room towards the strip this morning. After 7 weeks with mostly bad weather in Switzerland it's wonderful to experience bright sunlight and warm temperatures.

On Janaury 29 we flew from Zürich to Dublin and on January 30 from Dublin over London to Las Vegas. Even we have B2 visas it was difficult to get another stay for a half year in the USA.  But we got it and moved to a hotel and visited the Strip. The picture shows the light, sound and water show in front of the Bellagio resort in Las Vegas.

Today we visited our son in Basel, Switzerland. The picture shows an interesting place here. The rocket like monument on the left side is called «Three Country Corner». Near there in the middle of the Rhine river the three countries Switzerland, France and Germany meet each other. Left ist Switzerland, strait ahead on the other side of the Rhine river is France and about 50 meters to the right is Germany. The peninsula where the Swiss flag is flying is still Switzerland. The border to Germany is about 50 meters to the right. In the foreground is the entrance to the Swiss Rhine Port. The train cars belong to the port. A lot of goods are brought with boats up the Rhine river to Switzerland from ports like Rotterdam in the Netherlands or elsewhere.

But here is a picture of the restaurant on the Gupf. It is one of the best restaurants in the region. No, we didn't eat here. Ester cooked for us a very nice dinner.
