At Chateau-d'Oex I saw, for the first time in my life, hot air balloons! I was as giddy as the little kids on the train as we arrived. Lovely! Afterwards Farah and I met the marvelous Fam. Margot
, friends of Phillipe, in Rossinière, a gem of a village in the Swiss Alps. We walked to Rossinière through the woods, along the railroad tracks, and along winding roads, arriving at dusk without an address. But a kind lady in town directed us and we found ourselves embraced by one of the dearest families ever.

Je suis Suisse, bien pas encore.

Am feeling official. This is my bus pass... though do a little more walking than bussing. I actually ran across to France yesterday!
