Please don't spoil my thoughts from the beautiful pictures I have seen of Bern by telling me there's a McDonalds or Subway?
Don't knock it ...... Subway, at least, is still a novelty for the locals - a sandwich that is made fresh to order and hasn't sat in a cabinet for half a day.

.... and the good news is that there's one in the shopping complex under the stadium in Wankdorf (yes, that's a real place name: if 'dorf' means village, I'll let you guess the rest).

Blimey, I didn't know there were so many Everton supporters

Course there is. Burger King, too. But not quite the prices you're used to. No KFC, though. And if you fancy a hot curry, best wait till you get home.

Well, there's a place in Lancashire called Tosside, so he'll feel right at home.

And a place called "Penistone" but that is in Yoorkshur.

I grew up near there and never thought of that ( because of the way we say it I guess).
I won't be able to drive through or write my cousin's Christmas card without sniggering now.

Many thanks Annalisa, very much appreciated...... So many helpful people on here, great forum.

It goes without saying that anyone wishing to visit Liverpool must try a Cains beer and a lovely hot bowl of scouse....complete with red cabbage and bread.
