Last Monday, August 1st, Switzerland turned 720 years old as a confederation. Every year the 1st of August is celebrated with a huge firework show (or let’s say ‘large’, Switzerland has different dimensions than some other large countries…) launched from a ship anchored in the middle of the Rhine in downtown Basel. This year we went, as we had very a special visitor, and both she and I enjoy photographing. Here are some impressions from that day and evening.
