In the Slammer!

Jeannette and I just got home from a short vacation, part of which ended up with us spending the last two nights in a Swiss prison. And let me tell you, they don't make their prisons like their cheese - full of holes!

It all started as a plan to meet Jeannette's friend who happened to be at a conference in Switzerland. We would meet in Basel, which is on the border with Germany and Switzerland.

We went a couple days early, and played around in Freiburg and Breisach, a couple of cities in southern Germany. We met Jeannette's friend, as planned, and had a great time in Basel. Then, she had to return to the US, and Jeannette and I decided to stay in Switzerland and hopped on a train to Luzern.

Luzern is an incredibly beautiful city, even with the totally crappy weather we had. I'll try to get some pictures up soon.

OK, enough babble. You want to know how it came to be that we spent two nights in a Swiss prison. Well, I won't bore you with all the little details, but it turns out that the cheapest hotel I could find in Luzern was converted from a prison just a few years ago.

So, there you have it. The sordid tale of a young couple and the hard time they did in the big house.
