Basel Paper Mill
We had drinks in a rather posh coffee-house, then visited the Paper Mill.
This has been refurbished — the mill wheel turns — and is
occupied by a small business doing specialist papermaking. You can watch
paper being made in the tradional fashion and even make some yourself!
It's also The Swiss Museum for Paper, Writing and Printing, with several
floors of exhibits which include presses, type machines, etc.
We crossed back over the Rhine using the motorless ferry, which is a
boat held in stream by a wire across the river and moved by the force
of the current. And we wandered through Klein Basel admiring the
variety of sculptures and fountains.
After dinner we said goodbye and headed for the airport, stopping at the
supermarket in the train station for Camilla to buy several kilograms
It's not clear to me that even Swiss chocolate is cheaper in Switzerland!
Camilla found what she thought were some bargains, but my standard
"400gm Toblerone bar" was more expensive in Swiss supermarkets than in Tesco.
