Cab ride to the hotel: correction

On closer inspection I now realize those weren’t actual Swiss people, they were German-speaking baby giraffes. But in my defense, it’s an easy mistake to make.
Actual Swiss people have struck me as exceptionally quiet, at least compared to us yackety yack Yanks. We went through a plaza today with well over a hundred people and there was barely an audible murmur. Walking past a gent on a cell phone, we were amazed (and, frankly, moved) by his ability to hold a conversation while emitting a noise about as loud as a summer breeze.
OK. Must stop now. Typing too loud. Some folks across the street are starting to scowl.

    I am digging these. Now step forward to the Jupiter detention area. Place your chocolate pops above your head so as the natives can reach down and chew them.
