How can Nico possibly be asleep? Oh well, plenty of time for blogging...time for feature #2: Pharmacies I visited in Europe. Some of you may remember, I did a similar segment in Mexico several months back. I was not looking for anything in particular this time.
In Switzerland and Germany, apothekes (hope I spelled that right) are everywhere. Photo #1 is an 18th century pharmacy, now residing in Zurich's Landesmuseum.
Next up, Lucerne claims one of the oldest continuously operating pharmacies in Europe.
Breisach also claims one of the oldest continuously operating pharmacies in Europe.
This pharmacy offers a few value added services.
3 Euros for cholesterol screening? What a deal! The young girl inside spoke no English. She ran away when I took out my camera, but reappeared with the older woman, who forced her to be in the picture.
This pharmacie is somewhere in France.
In Obernai, I met a young pharmacist (6 months out of school), who not only spoke English, but was interested in talking to me. Was that a sentence? Hey, it's 5 in the morning. Pharmacists in France go to school for 6 years, and to our right is a shelf of "Pharmacist only over the counters"...patients can look at them, but cannot touch.
Here's one more pharmacie in Obernai.
Basically, that's all the pharmacies there is.
