The Swiss are such peaceful people, they just want to get along, but even they are having immigration issues. Some people here are upset over ads from the conservative party depicting a cartoon black sheep getting kicked out of the country by three white sheep. The more I travel, the more I realize every country has problems, and we struggle with the same issues. I had planned on spending one day here, but I have a stomach virus, so I have decided to spend another day. Turns out that I am in the red light district, I should have figured out after walking past the sixth (maybe the seventh?) sex bar. I love the area though, lots of culture, I have already had Chinese cashew chicken, falafel, and chicken shwarma. I can get free internet on my laptop across the street from the hotel at a place called ‘American Bar’, they have lady liberty as their logo, and I swear I am the only white guy in there. It is packed with middle easterners, it is the most ironic, funniest thing I have seen in awhile. Speaking of funny (actually strange), I was listening to a podcast of a food program (kcrw’s good food) and they did a story on this guy who started a website www.hatsofmeat.com beware my vegetarian friends, maybe you can start your own with beautiful fruits and vegetables (wouldn’t be as weird though).
