In September 2000, I went to Switzerland for a week. I stayed with my parents in the town of Villars-sur-Ollon, which is nestled in the Alps at 1300 meters above sea level. Villars is located above the Rhone river valley, in the Frech-speaking part of Switzerland. Each day I made a different excursion out into the local area. On various days, I saw parts of German and French Switzerland, as well as France and Italy.
