July 14, 2010. Very hot in Basel today, but I'm not complaining. After a very cold winter, we're having a very hot summer. But no problem. Today it lingered somewhere around 100 F degrees, and we boarded a boat that took us up the Rhine a bit and back. Everybody drove back home and I stayed a little longer to sketch this little corner of the Marktplatz before jumping on a bus and going home.
