Untours Cafe

I have added a few Swiss headlines that I find interesting/amusing. A guy arrested for speeding (106 mph in a 75mph zone) gave the judge an excuse that he had severe diarrhea and needed a toilet in a hurry. The judge was not impressed and gave him 20 days in jail, a 1000CHF fine, and 3 months without his license. A lawyer in Zurich left the lights on in a public building for five days over a vacation period. The court fined him 300CHF because the light disturbed the neighbors sleep. A later reversal was made because the public building authority was responsible for the building and should have taken care of this oversight. The court has not decided what to do with them yet. The Swiss welcome the Japanese tourists more than any other nation. The Austrians come second. The Germans are last (they are the largest group of foreign tourists in CH). English are # 7. The most hospitable destinations for the Swiss tourists are Austria #1, Italy, Germany, Spain, Greece, France, Thailand, England, the USA, and Turkey in descending order.
