The kids are in school! And they were pleased to go! Yay!
But as they were getting ready this brisk 50*F morning it became clear that the decision to bring only their shorts and to pack only 2 pairs of long pants for E and no long pants for H in the air shipment was a bit short-sighted. (What can I say? I was hopeful the warm temps would hold out until October.)
So, I took a little shopping trip out.
All by myself.
So I went to Marktplatz to explore it again.
And let me say, the children’s clothing stores are few and far between. The H&M there is only adult clothes (with very cute shoes). And the Globus (this is for my friend Ginnie) has very expensive designer children’s clothes. It was fun though. I hadn’t seen the Pepe’ brand for years and years!
So I wandered around the Platz. And took a few pictures.
The whole square is full of fruits, vegetables, flowers, pastries, sandwich trucks, crepe carts, honey vendors, and there is actually a person who only sells mushrooms!
I eventually did find some nice clothes for the boys. At a great, friendly, and reasonably priced French boutique (not an oxymoron). The grandparents might be getting a fashion show via FaceTime in a few days.
I love wandering around Basel. This weekend, though we are planning on an excursion! Stay tuned for news about our trip to Cernier in Neuchatel.
