Manhattan Bridge From Brooklyn

On Sunday night we stayed with a friend of Jamie’s and he took us up on his rooftop retreat to watch the sunset over the East River. Amazing view. A little chilly (read: OMG! GET ME BACK TO THE DESERT!) but totally worth it for the amazing view we had.

New York was good to us with it’s sunsets. Totally amazing that weekend.

Travel Brochure Much?

I went out of town for the weekend…. while goofing around I saw this couple standing next to the water and they looked just like a travel ad and I couldn’t resist them. 🙂

Church in Vieux Bourg, St. Prex, Switzerland

The internet, it is an amazing thing. I am blogging to you today from what is 1/3 of the way around the globe from my home state of Arizona. Seriously weird.

Anyway, Fud and I took a walk through the Old Town (vieux bourg) of the small village where she lives in Switzerland. It is more than a little charming down there. I took 63 pictures which Fud seemed to feel was Not Enough. I’m sure I will more than make up for it once the jet lag has completely worn off. It is also my goal that by the end of my week here, Kelley will understand how to run the basics of my camera. Because the teacher in me will not die, even on vacation!
According to some random website found via google, St. Prex was built along the lakefront of Lake Geneva in 1234 by the Archbishop of Lausanne. Seems he wanted to protect the population from Savoyard attacks. I have no idea who the Savoyard are or why they would attack, but build a city to protect from them seems to have happened all the same. So basically, St. Prex was the location of warning to the church in Lusanne. the villagers within the city walls would build a fire to let the smoke signal to the church in Lusanne that an attack was on the way.

What i want to know is how did they build this fire to mean “attack” and not “we’re grilling up a nice side of mutton, come join us. BYOB.”

No matter what, it’s a wonderfully beautiful little town.
