I caught a train to Lucerne (Luzern) today. The landscape along the hour ride was filled with lakes and mountains. I got to the hostel and dropped off my bags before heading off to see the town. The lake was awesome and full of sailboats. I sat on a ... Read more >

Zermatt is a busy place on a Sunday afternoon. I tried the local barley soup waiting for Sky to arrive from Basel. Not bad. Now to find some good chocolate. You think everyone in Switzerland is rich (average income nearly $80,000/year) and speak English.... Read more >

Could that be angelica? Yes, indeed, a four foot beauty growing in a corner of the strawberry bed I walk by on my way between living quarters and eatery. Check first to see if anyone is looking, then casually break off some new growth. Very delicious ... Read more >

Still here studying away, recently with EGS founder Wolfgang Schirmacher. Extremely eccentric. Delivers a steady stream of disconnected antidotes, jokes, insults, autobiolgraphical details and general nonsense. Almost walked out the first day. Now I ... Read more >
