Off to Switzerland!

Every two years, Florian and his son and I go to Switzerland to stay with his parents outside Geneva. 

The trip generally brings no shortage of adorable farm animals, 










alpenhorn players, 
 







whose music I find oddly relaxing and mesmerizing,








 
and incredible scenery. 









His parents love to be outdoors, hike, and picnic, and the tiny town they live in is a place of picturesque geranium-festooned stone houses and open fields with views to Mont Blanc. 
Last time, we even found a positive dog trainer right near his parents' place in Puplinge. 

So for the next couple of weeks, if I don't get to post you'll know where I am!

I'm probably eating really good chocolate, getting a respite from the humidity, and practicing my yodel! The pups get to stay with our buddy Francine. 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
