Switzerland, October 28-29, 2015

One of my earliest memories of Switzerland is Wädenswil in July 1983. Kaisu and I were in an advanced German class together at a language school in Zurich. We were probably the most fluent in the class and got to be friends. One day after class I went to Wädenswil and had dinner with her and her husband, Urs, at a pizzeria.

We stayed in touch, and pretty much every year after that until I moved to Switzerland in 1995, I visited her for a couple of days. That was the benefit of working for German and Swiss entities in Washington, D.C.

We take a quick walking tour of Wädenswil so I can take pictures.

The next morning, I’m on the train to the airport, conveniently one stretch with no change. Then it’s on home to Tucson.
