Saturday morning with friends

Not much time to write, but some pictures from the weekend:

These guys plus Ed picked me up Friday night after work and we went miniature golfing in a nearby town and then back to Raph's house, where we all were staying. Saturday sometime after facials, we decided to float down the river, so we piled in the car and zipped over to Mumpf, where we left the car, hopped a train back up river to Stein, where's there's a footbridge that's fairly handy for jumping. (Video plucked from the internet so you can see the bridge. There's stuff on Wikipedia too. Sorry, I don't have pictures from where we jumped, but...it's about 10 seconds into the video. We climped over the railing on the right side.)

. I just learned on the trustworthy information site known as youtube that it is the largest covered wooden bridge in Europe. It was my first time jumping off it, and see mom? I lived. We swam across the river to Germany (which in retrospect was kind of silly, considering there was a perfectly nice bridge there) and then back across to Switzerland. In other interesting events from the week, Aubrey asked Raph about his observations from his trip to the States, and among other things, whether I was any different at home than I am here. He said I smile a lot more at home. Y'all must make me happy. :)

  2. Yeah, don't jump from too high. It was only about 20 feet. Andrew jumped off a cliff so tall that people looked like specks in toy boats at the bottom. That's a lot different.

  7. The August facial photos of Raph just don't line up with the muscle car driver of July. At least we'll have room for Brian in the Looser Cruiser this weekend.

  9. They're good sports, aren't they? Ben was so enthusiastic about the experience, he thinks he'll have his football club in Wales do facials to relax before a game. Raphael, on the otherhand, said it was the only only only time he was ever doing one. :)

  10. Ben ought to think twice before he suggests facials for his football club. He and Raphael were in the company of two girls :) when they went through the "experience". Acceptance in mixed company does not always equate with acceptance in nonmixed company and could affect ones position in the pack. Refer back to the third post at this point.

  11. Just found out - from an incredibly clever calendar of Japanese folk wisdom - that you can also make a facial by mixing 6 parts wheat flour and 4 parts rice bran with water until it becomes pasty. You should consider that next time.
