Tee --

We used a Swiss company as parent for our European operations, so I had to go there regularly for "corporate stuff," which was not very demanding, so my time was loosely structured and I was able to take my Wife on several trips.

That is the famous "Eiger Wall" -- the big one in the background, not the little one in front. She loved the place.

That is the cleanest country I have ever seen. If there is an idle piece of trash on the sidewalk, the next passing citizen will pick it up. Something in their DNA, I guess. Also the friendliest people we found anywhere.

Great place. I hate seeing it surrender.

Take care,

Russ
