After climbing up the steps, there are some beautiful views of the city of Bern.

This is a type of strip mall.  This overhang was built to protect customers from the elements.  As you can see, it resembles a tube. So, when patrons go shopping, they do not say they are going shopping.  They are going “tubing.”

As I said, our guide is a very community conscious person.  When the city was going to repave this street, citizens were asked to donate a brick.  This is the brick that our guide, Marie-Therese and her husband donated.

A lot of street performers ply their trade for tips.  Note the hat on the sidewalk to collect the tips.

This girl is optimistic.  She has two hats.
