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.
