They also love graffiti. It's on almost every building. Most of it is normal junk thats ugly and doesn't really mean anything. Then there are others that more like murals and probably took a lot of time. Those are cool to look at.
I think the most interesting part of being here is the language barrier. Being in a smaller town, English isn't quite as commonly spoken as we all thought it would be. I can't even tell people that I can't speak their language. All I can do is shake my head and walk away. I ordered a pizza today by pointing to the picture of it on the giant menu boards on the back wall. I did the same with the pastry I bought a few hours later. They seem to catch on quickly that were Americans.
Matt, this one's for you...I know how you love themTomorrow is our first event. We're racing the Arnon Bike Marathon is Grenichen, Switzerland. They're telling us its a local race, but we're in Europe, and I have my doubts.
