Swimming in the Rhine

are there "chemicals" involved?

sunny 31 °C

My boss just said a couple days ago, Basel is the first and maybe also the only city where people walk in the main street in their bathing suit. There is just everyone, old, youngsters, kids.
First time I went swimming in the Rhine, the weather was not that great so I did not have to stand in line to get into the water, but now, as the temperatures climbed over 30 C, it is literally a procession walking along the river to later float downstream.
Currently I life just about a block away from the rhine and work about 3k upstream. So my idea is now, no, not to swim upstream, but to go home in the river...We'll see how far I get...
I will put up some picture from this daily event...it's worth to see!
