Down, Down, Down

The view of the Brienzersee shows water that is sea green, and the hills across the lake would be considered mountains anywhere else.

We came down from the mountains, sadly, this morning, but the compensation was great.  The train from Muerren stopped in Interlaken Ost and from there we caught a ship.  On board, we enjoyed salads, beer, and fried fish.  It was comfortable and inspired.

Gradually, in just over an hour, we made it to Brienz.  Here old friends met us at a cafe near the quay.  We drank coffee.  I’ve known one of these people all of my adult life, for 41 years, and her partner I’ve known nearly fifteen years.  The talk is intimate and yet easy.

Here at the house where my friend lives, we are going to prepare a roasted chicken and a fresh salad preceded by cold corn soup.  Good wines from the Valais: Cornalin and Humagne Rouge.
