My dears,

I missed you so much yesterday. I have been to Grisons, a very mounty part of Switzerland in the south east. Driving through the little village the movie "Heidi" was done I was thinking if you know it:


The area is so beautiful I just wished you could see through my eyes in this moment.

I wish you all a great great weekend

PS: And now I am going to a womans breakfast with about 20 chatty lovely girls for the birthday of my neighbor Daniela

Have fun at your luncheon! Oh how I wish I could see what you are seeing! Yes, Heidi is an American classic. It starred our child star named Shirley Temple. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w14YWDZtY7g

Yes I know Heidi, but as a book. It's been written by Johanna Spyri. I still have them all.

Good morning, Renate. I enjoyed the book Heidi as a little girl and as Rebecca mentioned, here in the States there is a classic movie from the 1930's that almost everyone is familiar with based on the book.
You live in an area of great beauty!
enjoy your luncheon

How does an American apply for permanent residence in Switzerland?

What a thrill it must be to work in an area that is so picturesque as the mountains of Switzerland! We wish we could see it through your eyes! And we all remember the story Heidi, mostly from the movie, but I did have the book on my shelf as a child! I can only imagine the beauty you see as you travel around your countryside.

my son was stationed in southern Germany for several yrs and I was fortunate to visit twice. We traveled around to some different countries and I even was there for Octoberfest once. The countryside and mountains were beautiful. I even white water rafted in the alps. Wow was that water cold (ice melt). I would go back in a heartbeat given the chance..

I am a home body. I was born and raised in New England, Massachusetts to be more specific. I have been to New York city and Washington, DC. I have never had any desire to travel anywhere outside of New England beyond that. Until now. I would love to someday go to Switzerland and Germany. Maybe a nice trip by rail in my future.

Renate, I wish I could see it too. I hope you had an amazing day.

Don't know that area, spent time in Leysin (sister went to school there), but hey, what part of Switzerland isn't beautiful, eh? Enjoy your luncheon!

I love the movie Heidi and have read the book many times. One of my all time favorite movies.
