I made Bern by noon after a short ride on a Swiss electric train from Bern.The Swiss trains are so maddeningly swift and silent that it is difficult to enjoy the ride. After debarking in Bern central station I had short walk to the hotel through acres of old historic buildings. The river that bisects the town is called the Aane; like everything else in Switzerland it seemed to be orderly and well mannered, keeping nicely within its banks. The city looks much like K-W did 500 years ago before the Great Fire wiped out what Charlemagne had built along the Grand.
