    This is just what I needed for info on what to do for a few days. The train is a must and so is the old town. Just keep that rain away until we leave since I don't have the proper shoes.

    Thank heaven the Swiss have such a good reputation for punctuality. After all, one wouldn't want to stand too long at the FART station! Imagine the cell phone conversation: "Whatcha doin'?" "Waiting for a FART" Oh, OK, take it easy then."

    Beautiful pics. Did the fish find their way in along with the ducks and swans? :-) You made flooding look romantic.

    La mia scuolina, purtroppo, sta su una alturetta, quindi ... niente joy e niente pics...
