Hi all,

I am at Ballmers hostel in Interlaken. Great place. A lot of Americans and Canadians here. Let me tell you, it is relieving to speak to someone in English with confidence for a change. This seems to be a good night spot, too.

I spent the day up at Grindelwald (sp?). It is near the highest peak in Europe. The Swiss Alps are absolutely stunning. I will try to log back on from Italy tomorrow. I have not yet been able to find a way to upload photos on these pay-as-you-go computers. Nor can I use contractions. I will do what I can. Off to check email now.
