Border


Sitting in Switzerland and France : Versoix/Ferney Border Crossing, CH/FR

This is a picture of me, sitting in both Switzerland and France on the marker that designates the boundary between the two countries. Along the hedgerow is Switzerland. The plowed field is France. In the very far distance, beyond the high tension wires, is Mont Blanc.

Mo said...

Great shot, but you look cold.

The Artful Eye said...

Happy New Year! to the both of you. Maya likes her photo, so should you its great.
Be well, prosper and stay happy.

Maya: It's a good photo. You did well! ;-)

Petrea: Happy New Year to you, too! I always did want to return to Europe after living here 20 years ago, so I guess I am living a dream.

Mo: Thanks. And yes, it was pretty cold yesterday.

Andrea: Yeah! It's so good to see you here. Happy New Year to you, too, my friend. I was thinking of you this morning and hoping 2010 is a good year for you. Hugs and love.

This sounds like it could be an interesting ride. My curiosity was twanged by your title. I'm up for the ride.

Hilda said...

Wow, Janet, this is so different from DC. I hope you've settled in well and enjoy your new home. Wishing you a new year blessed with joy, peace, good health, prosperity and much love.

It's good to see you, at least virtually. :)

Debi said...

ADORE this shot of you! How cool to be able to straddle two countries (literally and figuratively?).

Nice to have another shutterbug running around with you, to document you within your travels, done with talent and obvious affection.

Rob said...

Wait, don't you need a passport? ;)

Janet M Kincaid said...

Julie: Thanks for coming along for the ride. Should be fun to see where it all ends up!

Hilda: Definitely different from D.C. But that's part of the adventure, isn't it? Thank you for your lovely wishes. May you have a joyous and prosperous new year, too!

L.A. Cochran: Thanks! I guess I should post photos with me in them more often, eh?

Debi: Thanks! It's so different from last year's, isn't it? And yes, it's pretty fun to straddle two countries and esp. nice to be accompanied by someone who takes nice pictures of me!

Rob: Crap! I knew I was forgetting something! ;-) (Actually, it was in the pocket of my jacket. I never leave home without it.)

Rob said...

uh-oh, isn't that Karl Malden's line? ;)

Janet M Kincaid said...

Rob: Why, yes. Yes it was! (But now I can't remember the product he was pitching. American Express? Hm.)
