The onion market was more than a little odd, not so much because they sell onions but because hundreds of people get up early to drink wine in a freezing cold street and children are given plastic hammers to hit people with.

 I went back to bed at 7 for another hour then went to see the bears of Bern, after being assured they are no longer kept in a pit. I suppose the enclosure is not too bad but it still seems wrong to keep them in the city next to a main road.

Then it was time to go to Brussels, unfortunately there was no overnight train so I wasted a day, further delayed because trains in Germany were stopped for two hours by an unspecified 'incideint involving a person'.
