Expat in Europe

Evening Stroll in Switzerland : Bossy, CH

July 4th is Independence Day in the United States. In the 1850s, my ancestors migrated from German-speaking Switzerland and from the British Isles to America, then trekked across the plains and settled in the Salt Lake Valley. I was unable to find the expat celebration of July 4th that usually takes place in Geneva, so instead I offer this photo of the Swiss countryside as an homage to my ancestors who left this beautiful country to carve out a new life in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
