Stunning view number one
Well, you know what it's like. You spend a fortnight sitting on trains, looking idly at beautiful bits of Switzerland (well, actually it's almost all beautiful) and then you get home and you have so many million things to do that you don't have time to blog.
But anyway: we were on 49 trains and a bus. Some of our party were really quite train-geeky. "Oh look!" would go the cry. "This is 39.8 coupling! And it's joining a Federal wagon to a Confederate!" (Or words to that effect.)
And people would crowd round, exclaiming, "I've only ever seen that on the Geneva line!" and write things down in their little notebooks.
Meanwhile I'd be examining the window boxes and wondering how they get their geraniums to bloom so prolifically.
Must get on.
(We didn't fall off a cliff, by the way.)
