Email to some one other then you.

I thought this email I just wrote would tell you a bit about our life here.
"Greg,

Please forgive my grammer. The laptops here are quite diffrent fom the states so I have given up trying to use all proper grammer. This email will work. The trip has been great - it is even more beautiful than you can imagine.

It has been beautiful weather - we hear it is the best in quite a long time. I hope that it keeps up for you. By the way we have the train tickets that you ordered here. The dog has been fine. He needs a bit of attention but really likes people. As long as you take him out twice a day for a walk he is pretty easy going. We will introduce you when you get here.

This is how you get to Vevey from Geneva. Buy a train ticket in one of the billet machines. If Vevey is not listed then you should click the option to go to Montreux. Vevey is right before Montreux. The train is only about an hour. Please let us know the time that you will be arriving so we may meet you and take you up to the hosue to meet the animals. Of course we will stop for a coffee at Starbucks first.

The transportation works quite well except for a few instances. There is a bus that runs from her house on the 31st minute on the hour. It is quite easy and costs about 2.70 francs each way. The trains work very well and are very pleasant. The only hitch is that if you want to stay out for dinner you must catch the 9pm bus or you will be waiting untill 11pm to get back up to her house. Cabs are really not an option and if you manage to get one they are quite expensive. If you want to go out later then 11pm then you will have to stay in town. The late bus only goes on Friday and Saturday at 2:40 in the morning - however no trains come to Vevey that late. So if you go out in another town you will have to stay there till the 7:32 am bus back up to the house.
Please let me know if there is anything else.

Thanks much,

Jessyca

So today we went hiking at Molson and then off to walk the town. We then went to Pizza and the largest beer I think Ive ever had. Mind you not the most beer in a siting but the largest mug of beer. We were with this lovely sister, her smart little one and husband. We told jokes all night. It was such a lovely night. We are back at the house drinking white wine listening to U2. Tomorrow we are off to a coffee tasting, the olympic mussee, and then some shopping. I am in love with my new dress. It was at this little store that was liqudating so it was ridicuiosly underpriced - looks like Ill look smashing for my friends upcoming wedding.

Dear Jessyca and Lauren;

Obviosly, you're having a better time than most of your co-workers and old friends in Ukiah (USA). Watch out for hot Swiss guys,they're everywhere! I suppose I'll have to be content riding my two-wheeled steed around the countryside and enjoying a martini with Ashton Parado. I thank
you again for a great time in Seattle. Have a wonderful adventure and bring back great memories and cool stuff!

Bye for now, Davey

Wow, I just found out that the Matterhorn is not far from Montreaux. Have you seen it? Can you take a photo of it? How cool is that!

Justin says that he loves you and he hopes you continue to enjoy the friends you have met. Also hopes you take many pictures to show to us.

How was the coffee tasting?

Love
Mom
