Tired & rainy

As I got off the tram in the centre of Basle this morning, scores of bleary-eyed Fasnacht participants were heading home following three days of carnival that officially ended at 4 this morning. I was also weary, as I'd gone to bed way too late last night. I'd been watching the live cams from Basle on my computer and realised that 10 p.m. onwards on the final evening is one of the event's special moments: the time when everyone ventures out for one last hurrah until the street fall silent at 4 a.m.

It was a rainy day, too, which suited my mood.
