A Weekend in Switzerland: Neuchâtel

Last weekend I was in Switzerland, visiting some friends. Here some pictures I took in Neuchâtel: enjoy!

Neuchâtel is watching you

Books, books and more books

At the market: spices, multicolor eggs and olives

Hope you liked them!

Next stop: Murten.


Milk and honey

Spring is here, and I have a cold. Not fair at all!

When I have a cold, it always goes like this: first I start feeling tired, then I have a sore throat, then my voice starts getting low and deep, and finally a runny nose.

Right now I’m in the “low and deep voice” fase. Today the guy I work with asked me if I was feeling ok, and when I told him not to worry, I was fine, it was just my voice…he told me it was scary. 😀

Well, hopefully a comforting cup of warm milk with a bit of honey will make me feel better.


Green Thumbs Up

The bulbs I planted in October are finally growing. I can’t wait to see the flowers blooming! I was looking at them the other day, thinking that I’m quite good at this gardening thing.


Then I turned around and saw this.


A cactus. Dead. And I killed it.

Poor thing! I guess I didn’t take good care of it. But I thought it didn’t need much attention. Probably I was wrong. (I guess?! Probably?!)

Anyway, now that I know that I’m not good with cactuses (or cacti. I wasn’t sure about the plural of cactus, so I checked and both are correct. You always learn something new!), I’ll plant something that I know I can grow.

Like sunflowers seeds. I have the ones I collected in the past years, and now it’s the right time to plant them.  I should also have some herbs. Maybe basil, mint, parsley, and coriander. Mmm, I love coriander! I’m already thinking about the things I could cook with those herbs.

Yes, I should definitely have some herbs. Tulips are beautiful, but they’re not very useful while cooking! 🙂
