Bern Clock Tower
by Jorge Sanchez - 4 years, 9 months ago
When I left my job in Genève, washing cups in the restaurant La Réserve, I headed to Paris but stopped in several Switzerland pretty cities, such as Lucerne, Interlaken, Berne, Basel...
I arrived to Bern and walked for its lovely central square and suddenly a clock tower marked the hours and I could see, admired, how the statues, like dollies, moved around; it was like a giant musical toy and liked it as if I was a child. It was the first time in my life (I was 19 years old) that I saw such a wonderful clock.
Furthermore, the city was surrounded by a river and its buildings were old, medieval, it was really a lovely place to live.
I slept for free in a shelter for homeless people and the next day, after having breakfast with the vagabonds, I left Bern, and hitchhiked with destination Basel.
