Visiting Kiki - January 2020 - Day 2

Here is the post about our second and last day with Kiki. We picked her up at around 10am, the Grandma gave her to us, because her foster mama was at work. We decided to drive into the little town first and go to our apartment after.

We walked around the pedestrian zone, went into the tourism office, a few stores and whatnot. She was the star once again. First a mail lady stopped and talked to us and her, then another older couple. The wife was afraid of dogs, but she was okay with Kiki.

Kiki showed her cheeky personality too. Her foster mum does not allow her to jump up and down the stairs, but on our way back to the car she literally jumped on every little step (not really stairs, just a small step in front of stores due to the old buildings) and she was so happy doing that. We noticed that a few hours later. Haha! Good thing we only have her for a few days and are allowed to be a bit more relaxed about rules and treats.

We went to the apartment to have tea and coffee and rested for a bit on our bed afterwards. She was allowed to join us (big sister is also allowed to join us in the bed here at home) and she had the best time. She rolled on her back and snuggled with us.

We decided to go out once again and so we drove to a pet store and a hardware store. She was perfect again in both stores. Especially seeing her walking around the big hardware store was amazing. She acted like she lives there. Really confident in herself. The automatic doors were also no problem. In the pet store we put her in a dog bag and a dog stroller to test how she would look like in them and she let us do it with her.

And that was the last day. We don't know yet when we will be able to visit her again. Maybe in April/May? We are already planing what we are going to do with her.😊

I'll continue doing these when she is here. It is fun for me too. And a good memory, I'm working on a photo book and I have to come back to my posts here to see what we did when we visited her for the first time and all that.

      Switzerland is easy as well. As soon as you‘re allowed to vote you get your ballot to the adress you‘re registered at. Mail in voting starts a few weeks before voting weekend. I say voting weekend because we don’t just elect officials but also get vote on policies.

      Many parts of Europe have voter ID laws and limited polling. And racist naturalization laws that make it hard for everyone to vote. 

      Europe is a big placer-which country are you talking about?

      There’s no national ID law in the States-in fact it’s very controversial here, which is why people have to register to vote.

      It always amazing to me how topics which are considered conservative or controversial in the States-like voter ID-are commonplace and accepted around the world.

      A national ID card is a hot issue in Australia too. Most people have ID, but there is no requirement to have it, and there is resistance to bringing in a compulsory ID.

      Voting is easy. Always a Saturday, all day from 8 to 6 and most local schools are polling places, as well as town halls and community centres. No ID needed, you just state your name and address and get marked off a giant list. We just vote for the representatives for our city/area, not for any other laws or judges etc. Everyone has to vote or you get a fine, unless you are in hospital or something.

      BTW, they own a double stroller, there was a picture of it last year.  Apparently they can't be bothered to use it when they actually need it the most.
