Basel

It was the 16th of June in Switzerland and the Basel Esperanto Society were celebrating Bloomsday by reciting Ulysses on the banks of the Rhine. It was nearing the end of a hot day and they sat in the shade of the Mittlere Rheinbrü cke, one of six bridges spanning the river. Water skiers, mostly Americans in town for the opening of the art fair later that evening, performed like gladiators along the stretch of water that separates Kleinbasel from Grossbasel. At exactly the same time, on the other side of the world, the Tank Hero was lead from a Beijing interrogation cell and executed. His family were made to pay for the bullet.
