Dwight Peck's personal Web site

Winter 2002-2003

Very eventful, but in a quiet way


As round the world some of them were trying in vain to convince the rest of us that it would be a fun idea to go bomb a lot of the folks down in Iraq, D. Peck and friends spent the fall and winter hiding out in the safest place they could think of.

Marlowe and Dima see the sights of the Suisse Romande

You may not find this interesting unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Morat / Murten

The medieval walled town on the Lac de Morat between Neuchâtel and Fribourg on the linguistic border (hence the two names), December 2002.

Dwight and Dima in drizzly Morat

Marlowe reflective on the battlements of the Morat city wall. Perhaps thinking back to earlier visits to the Lac de Morat . . . .

like this one in 1992.

Now to the Castle of Gruyères

None of your classic panoramic and main-streets shots of Gruyères this time, as incomparable as they always are -- here we find Marlowe and Dmitri circumambulating the town and castle walls in the early evening.

"Sergeant [Your Name], your mission is to "neutralize" the defenders in that corner tower, and you have to get it done immediately. There is no close air support this time, sorry, no Security Council resolution."
