Swiss national day :-)
Basel, the art and architecture capital of Switzerland, August 1- 5, 2008
Visiting my long year friend Marina.
Both Dutch, but we’ve met in Switzerland in 1985, working in a small hotel in S-chanff, Engadin. I quit this job pretty soon and continued working in a hotel in St. Moritz.
After about 2,5 years I went back to the Netherlands, but Marina is still working in Switzerland (although since some years living in Germany, just a couple of kilometres from the Swiss border).
Although our life’s are very different we stayed in touch over all these years. We met every now and then. I went to Germany when she married, she came to The Netherlands for my husbands funeral. So we shared quite a bit, laughing and crying!
I drove to Steinen, Germany, on August 1th, 2008. The Swiss National Day.
We had dinner on the balcony listening the horn players on the alp.
