Of Imagining and Reality
When Anna Lee was 15 she went to Switzerland for three months as an informal exchange student. A few days after her October arrival her host family took her to stay in their chalet in Evolène where they took day trips to Chateaux Gruyeres and the chocolate factory in Fribourg and Lac Bleu. The leaves were golden and the grass still green. Roasted cheese, jambon sec (which I think is pork) and hot milky tea accompanied one hike. Anna Lee could believe it was real life.
