Dass Lorenz Keiser zu den großen Kabarettisten und Kolumnisten der Schweiz gehört, ist längst eine bekannte Tatsache. Doch Keiser ist auch ein unvergleichlicher Vorleser, und deshalb erscheinen seine besten Texte jetzt im Download.Als satirischer Beobachter beschäftigt sich Lorenz Keiser mit den Mythen unserer Gesellschaft. Als hintersinniger Gegenwartsdiagnostiker deckt er die großen Konflikte dieser Zeit auf und stellt die notwendigen Fragen. Zum Beispiel: Wann stirbt der gefüllte Biber in Papua-Innerrhoden aus? Welchen Einfluss hat der Handynetz-Abdeckungsgrad auf die christliche Liturgie? Erfährt die erotische Bundesratsballade endlich ein Comeback? Warum steigt der Verbrauch von Slipeinlagen während heidnischer Feste? Gibt es Basel überhaupt? Sind Finnen Heiden? Ist Ueli Maurer Maurer?Fragen über Fragen. Lorenz Keiser stellt sie alle. Antworten weiß er auch keine. Wir hören ihm trotzdem gern zu. Denn wie Vorlesen geht, das weiß er. Und wie!Sie hören eine Live-Aufnahme aus dem Kellertheater St. Gallen vom 03.03.2009. 1.

Switzerland is a remarkable country, half of whose territory lies in the Alps. This is the history of one Swiss alpine village. Raising cattle and making cheese brought modest wealth to its struggling peasants until a destructive Napoleonic invasion brought revolution and poverty. Well-being was slowly restored by a democratic unification of Switzerland. The Alps took on a romantic tourist glow in the Edwardian age and after the disruptions of two world wars the highland farmers and guest house keeps began to prosper. The book is published by Ohio University Press and Swallow Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ayn Czubas. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/012549/bk_acx0_012549_sample.mp3.

This is Switzerland´s second largest city (behind Zürich), with 178,900 residents, and is heavily influenced by its French neighbors to the west and south. Here you´ll find the quintessence or haute école of everything Switzerland stands for in the new century: beauty, wealth, education, international relations, and culture, not to mention romantic scenery at its finest. One aspect of Geneva that is hard to miss is the Genevois´ love of food. In fact, Geneva is home to more restaurants per capita (over 1,100 in total) than any other major city in the world - including Manhattan. A visitor will also note that the Genevois serve an unusual preponderance of organ meat dishes, known as ´´abats´´. Everything from blood pudding - ´´boudin noir´´ - to pickled pigs feet are popular and commonplace here. Geneva has over 30 museums and private galleries, all of which contain prestigious private and public displays of art work, historical documents and cultural highlights. Geneva offers a diverse variety of cultural and sporting events, such as classical music concerts, open-air movies on the lakeshore, as well as various trade fairs. Annually, Geneva is home to the Inventions and New Techniques Fair, a rousing Automobile Show, an International Book and Press Fair and the High Watchmaking Fair. This is based on our comprehensive Adventure Guide to Switzerland, which is close to 600 pages in the print version. Here, we focus on Geneva and the surrounding area in Switzerland´s western portion. Among the many towns described are Lausanne, Montreux, Neufchatel, Fribourg, and Gruyeres. Also included is a detailed introduction with full information about what you need to know when visiting Switzerland. Nestled in the heart of Europe, Switzerland is a feast for the eyes, with azure-blue lakes that shine brilliantly against the greenest slopes of the surrounding Alps. 1. Language: English.

There is far more to Switzerland than beautiful scenery, chocolate, watches, faceless bankers, and spotless cities. The real Switzerland is full of surprises and anything but bland. This small, rugged, landlocked country at the heart of Europe has been a confederation since the first three cantons came together in a defensive alliance in 1291. Four national languages are spoken within its borders. Its present 26 cantons are largely autonomous and retain their individual characters. In this grassroots democracy real power lies with the people, who exercise it directly through frequent referendums. Swissness is, above all, a spirit of independence and of communal involvement. 1.
