C made sure to bring home some of the good eats from Switzerland. We had a very nice and very delicious wine and cheese evening Friday. We did not turn on the tv but just talked, catching up on everything that had happened during the last few weeks since we saw each other. Even if I miss C a lot there are also advantages to being apart for a while. You learn to appreciate each other all over again. Maybe a little bitter sweet but it is nice to miss each other for a while. It may not be fun to be apart for a few months but still there is something good coming out of that as well.
He also brought chocolate with him of course. The Swiss know their chocolate just as well as they know their cheeses.
Then also a bag of Spätzle, the special German version of pasta. I really think it is good. It seems to be just as loved in Switzerland as in Germany.
The Swiss also have their own wine region around lake Geneva. It is not only the neighboring countries that produce good wine. I look forward to tasting some of the Swiss wine.
