7/27 We Started in Switzerland. The jagged glacial alps rise straight up behind the hotels in Interlocken. Everything is green and the window boxes have lots or real red geraniums. We went to Ballenburg which is a 1698 to 1730 restored villiage. I've died and gone to Heidi land. Celeste and Brad did really well to plan this trip. We rode a night train (hard to sleep) to Carcasonne Castle in France. Cobblestone streets. Built by the Visigoths in 500 AD. Added onto by the Arabs in 725 then the french in 775 to 1400. We saw a jousting match all in French. Dacron Sayson won. This is him.
