Proper_Gander! I was worried you were one of them crazies that drove with a yellow former postal service Fiat Panda through Pakistan! Glad to see it wasn't you! I haven't decided if I go, but I have a friend over who loves tattoos so I might end up going to the parade. Why avoiding it, what it so bad about it?

close enough. went north to Central Asia from Iran though. Pakistan was never on the agenda and as the place was underwater at the time not feasible anyway!

what happened to the copycats then?

the best feature of Basel is the Rhine, the Tattoo ruins it with bagpipes and old people.

Ah well, I guess I'll go and help some of the older Semesters cross the road. Love the bagpipes myself.
