Jungfraujoch- Close to the top of Europe

Would be going to the top, but I am already feeling sick from the altitude.

I will go as high as I can stomach.

2 Days Left.

I fly home from Paris on November 4th. Two days and plenty to do. I accomplished my goal of seeing three countries and six days.

Today I go to the Einstein museum and up to Interlaken. Tomorrow, I will try and vote at the American Embassy and see the Matterhorn.

I will rest on the plane ride to DC.

Then back to Boston.


I spent my Halloween in the 6th smallest country in Europe. Liechtenstein is barely the size of Manhattan. And it is governed by a Prince who lives in a castle on top of a hill. I am writing this on the train from Zurich to Liechtenstein. There are cows grazing outside. Someone told me that cows were given hemp to mellow them out so they can produce more milk. There are old cathedrals on the hilltops and what looks like an old castle with the Liechtenstein flag on top.

The valley is flat and green it looks as though you could see out as far as 100 miles. Then you are directly confronted with snow capped mountains and all its stunning natural beauty. More to come later.
