Following the museum, we walked the streets of Bern until we came to the open market held in the Barenplatz where we had the most amazing lunch. We chose a restaurant that served traditional Swiss food. My sister and I shared a dish of rusti (potatoes) with macaroni and chess with bacon all mixed into one delightful dish. YUM! After lunch we continued our tour of the town. We explored more of the streets and ended back at the river Aare. There we cooled off my sticking our feet in the refreshing cold water. Our sore feet appreciated the relief! We ended our day with returning to the market to buy fresh strawberries and ingredients for dinner.
|The beauty of the water still astounds me with its perfect color.|
|The Munster in the distance. I really liked the buildings in the foreground next to the bridge.|
|Cooling our feet in the river watching struggling baby shrimp wash up on the steps we sat upon.|

|I love the wood raving and architectural details!|
