Day 14 Bern, Last day

OK I think I was tired of taking photos because I only have 3 for this day. Bern is the capital of Switzerland. The streets were cobble stone with statued fountains all along the main streets. (I can't believe I didn't get a picture of that.) There is also a famous Bear pit (Bern means bear) But there were no bears in it because the are renovating and building a new bear pit. But I did get a picture of the clock tower (the Swiss are know for their clocks) Crowds of people stand around to watch it chime in the hour, it has all kinds of moving parts with figures ringing bells and such.
Alright this photo we did a little play on words, and decided that they made chocolate fabric here. YUM.
This is a apartment that Albert Einstein lived in for a few years.
We got to tour the Capital building and do some shopping here We enjoyed our visit her in the old city. We later took an hour train ride to Zurich where we were to catch our flight home the next morning. We enjoyed our trip so much, but when we got off the plane in Arkansas and saw the kids waiting there with open arms.... There is just no place like home with your family around.

I saw a clock like that once in Prague. Neat aren't they? I particularly like you picture of the beautiful woman standing near Albert Einstein's house. Twee twoo!
