Photo of the Day Thursday 20th June 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day….”Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn’t be done.” Amelia Earhart.
“Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.”
A nice photo of the lake at Iseltwald, Switzerland today on an early autumn day. Switzerland has a wonderful system where citizens can (if they can raise 50 000 signatures) ask for a national vote on any law that they do not like. There are 26 cantons in Switzerland, which function like small states. One record that Switzerland holds is for the world’s longest staircase, which has 11 674 steps, alongside the Niesenbahn funicular. Zurich often comes tops in the list of most liveable cities in the world, although Geneva also scores highly. It also has the second highest life expectancy in the world (Japan is top). The highest mountain is the Monte Rosa (Dufourspitze) at 4634m, although the Matterhorn is more famous. It is said that Patek Philippe invented the world’s first wristwatch in 1868. And Switzerland is also the home of the world’s best chocolate !!
