In the middle of last week I read about a street food festival that was taking place in Olten (about 45 minutes train ride from us) on Saturday, which seemed like perfect timing – usually I find out about these things just after they occur rather than just before. When Jane pointed out that Saturday was also photo an hour day, the timing felt even more perfect. Obviously it was my fate to go! I’m planning a full post about the street food festival for later in the week, but for now here’s Saturday’s photo an hour:
10 a.m. I’m up! As usual, a cup of tea is needed before I do anything else. Trying to switch things up a bit by taking a photo of my cups in the cupboard.
11 a.m. Shower time! Look, it’s the shower in the new flat!
12 noon. Sorting out dry washing. *Yawn*
1 p.m. On the train (actually not 1 p.m. because we were busy buying tickets then and I kind of forgot about the photo. But 1 p.m. ish).
2 p.m. Still on the train. At least the view from the window was nice!
3 p.m. Waiting for some food at the festival! The weather kept switching from bright sunshine to rain literally within seconds – I felt like I was back in Britain! In this photo, it’s about to rain again.
4 p.m. Drinking lemonade from a Turkish stall. Very tasty and actually cheap!
5 p.m. Back on the train. I think we were near Sissach at this point.
6 p.m. Home! Doing a bit of cross stitch.
7 p.m. Erkältungstee time! I’m still not sure how a bunch of herbs can cure a cold, but anything’s worth a try, right?
8 p.m. Taking a break from cross stitching to read.
9 p.m. A late and light dinner since we spent the afternoon stuffing ourselves at the food festival.
10 p.m. (Ahem. Sort of). Rush (the film about Niki Lauda) was on Channel 4 so we decided to watch it. We get Channel 4 in Switzerland (and E4, More 4 and the BBC and ITV channels!).
11 p.m. Still watching Rush.
Midnight. Will this film ever end?!
It actually did end 15 minutes later then I went to bed without taking a photo. I don’t want to ruin my symmetry though, so here’s a bonus photo of the bedroom that I took a while ago to show my grandma our new place. You can see from the noon photo that we have different bedding on now.
The photo an hour roundup post isn’t up yet, but once it is you’ll find the link here.
