The Switzerland Travel presentation we attended this afternoon brought back many pleasant memories of our own visit of exploration some years ago.
Jean-Francois Lichtenstern, Consul General of Switzerland in Los Angeles was our host as we attended the event held at his residence in Hancock Park.
Representatives from several districts of Switzerland were present to tell of new points of interest for tourists.
They were from Basel, Bern, the Jungfrau Region and Interlaken, (this Writer's favorite area on his trip) as well as Lucerne and Lake Geneva and the Matterhorn region.
Some emphasis was placed on the one thousand mile grand rail tour which is a wonderful way to explore the country. On our trip we were on at least one train every day of our visit.
Jean-Francois proved to be a wonderful host as those of us in attendance were treated to a lawn party with delicious food and wine.
The event also announced the arrival of Swiss Air Lines first Boeing 777-300ER and new lounges at Zurich Airport.
