You get a certain view of the world from this height. It's hard not to feel lightly optimistic.
Mulhouse - what a delight. I had no idea what to expect but Mulhouse was alive with friendly people - was it the coming of summer? Was it something to do beer there? Perhaps it had something to do with 5o billion feathers falling from the sky as part of the gigantic performance in the town square. I've never seen anything like it - I found those damn feathers in my clothes for the next two weeks.

Here are some notes from the people of Mulhouse... some things to watch out for; excessive use of colour, multilinguistic phrases, Elvis alive and well, a proposal for marriage, a boat. What did I tell you?
