Marlowe's visit to Switzerland,
June-July 2007

Newly graduated from university, soon to be off to job-hunting, Marlowe visits the Old Dad in Switzerland.

Marlowe's Chillon

You may not find this terribly rewarding 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.

22 June 2007: whilst the Old Dad is at work, Marlowe revisited all the old scenes at the Château de Chillon -- here from the walk along the lakeside from Montreux. The highway viaduct runs along behind it, up the mountainside -- it was nearly brand new when I arrived here in Switzerland, but was recently reduced to one lane for nearly a year for periodic renovations.

These are some of Marlowe's best shots, which I've got because she was using my camera -- she's not responsible for the captions at all.
