The Swiss Parliament

The north side of the parliament, facing onto the Bundesplatz, or Federal Square

The south side, the top of which is lined with the coat-of-arms of each Swiss canton.

The vaulted arcardes at the botton of the south face, directly underneath the facade with the coats of arms.

A small anti-World Economic Forum protest on Federal Square. The WEF will take place this month in Davos, eastern Switzerland.

The woman's placat translates as "It's not about giving more to the people in the Third World, it's about stealing less from them." (Jean Zeigler)

Bern looks like a great town. I will definitely have to make it down there sometime soon and look around.
