If you'd have asked me the capital of Switzerland a month earlier, I'd have quickly answered Geneva, no wait, Zurich. I don't know, but one of those.
Wrong wrong wrong. It turns out the capital is a charming little German town called Bern. Here's the seat of government at night.
And a view out over the city from upon one of the surrounding hillsides. Bern sits in the bend of a river (just like Baghdad, except it's nothing like Baghdad) and the old part of the city is a gorgeous maze of narrow winding streets.
Pretzels and Beer for everyone!
