Our next stop was Lugano, Switzerland. Lugano is a beautiful city surrounded by mountains except for a large lake. The picture to the right is of us having lunch on top of Mt. Bre. You can see part of Lugano by looking past our shoulders.
Our first night in Lugano we discovered that a Brazilian church (right) was having a service in a conference room of our hotel. They invited us to attend the service. The young lady to the left in the picture below (Patricia) was the first person we met and she is the one who invited us to the service.

The other lady (Maya) directed the singing and interpreted for us. She is 17 years old and speaks 6 languages!

Since we were flying out of Zurich we spent one day touring Lake Zurich. That evening we visited our good friends Jorg and Irene Waldvogel. We met Jorg, who is a retired mathematics professor at ETH, at the University of South Florida while on professional leave. Since that time our friendship has grown and we make it a point to visit them whenever we are in Europe. This particular evening was our twentieth anniversary and Irene prepared an excellent dinner for us.
