Splendors of Switzerland

My Best Shot

October 16, 2005

In August, my wife and I visited western Switzerland. The views of the Alps were spectacular, and the people were very friendly. There were limitless photo opportunities, but this view of Mount Blanc really caught my eye.

We traveled to Germany to see my son, who had just returned from serving in Iraq and is now stationed in Wurzburg. When we toured the historic city of Munich, we were impressed by the beautiful painted lions (above) on almost every street corner. Our tour guide told us that city leaders got the idea for the lions (which appear on the city's crest) after a trip to Baltimore, where they saw all the fish. They should come back and see the crabs! -- PATTI MAILLETT, Arnold
