Having Paris as destination this
time, I tried to find a quick way
through Switzerland but, outside
of just leaving it out, there isn’t
any quick way. With a few not
able exceptions, the trains and, in
fact, the whole way of life has to
go around the mountains.
The first night saw us to Lake
Lugano, which is not far above
Italy. After dark I sat down by the
shore with a big old pale moon
hanging close to the mountain
tops and the sweet music of a
dance band drifting across the
water. Could have stayed there
the rest of my life, but didn’t.
Early next morning we were on
our way to Zermatt.
Up a cog railway and about an
hour from town was our all time
hotel. It literally hung on the edge
of nowhere and looked smack into
the Matterhorn. You could have
blown us over when somebody ask
ed us if we planned to climb it.
Apparently they have everything
but an elevator up there now and
the real climb is a ten mile jaunt
to the base, from which point the
top is only four hours distant.
Then another train and via Lo
carno we arrived at the east end
of Lake Geneva or Lake Leman,
Which are one and the same. Saw
the castle of Chillon, which is
among the smaller and less vicious
looking castles in Europe, here
and then boarded ship for Geneva.
Spent six hours at canasta and
arrived just at nightfall. From the
water you might easily have mis
taken it for Tacoma or even As
toria, God forbid. We had just
enough time next day to see the
old League of Nations building
with its decorations of wood,
marble, statuary, and painting
brought from all parts of the
world, and then on to Paris.
I guess it was about nine o’clock
when somebody thought they saw
the beacon on top of the Eiffel
tower and for the first time on
that whole trip, you could find
room to sit down. At a time like
this, who could sit?
We couldn’t see everything, but
we tried. In two days we tried to
get something out of the Palace
of Versailles with its famous Hall
of Mirrors, the Arc de Triomphe,
Napoleon’s Tomb, Notre Dame,
Sacre Cour, another beautiful
Church of white marble done in a
Byzantine style; Montmartre,
which is one of the so-called arty
districts, the Eiffel Tower, and so
on. No matter where we turned
there was something completely
different, completely Paris that
we just couldn't miss.
One night in Paris every tour
ist devotes to the Follies Bergiere,
and so we did. I’d give you a
thumbnail description if I hadn’t
chewed mine off. The staging was
just terrific and the girls, well,
not knowing exactly what to say,
I won’t say anything and be safe.
By this time we had reached a
kind of agreement on the activi
ties of the certain age groups in
the party so, locking Ma in her
room, a bunch of us hit out for
Pigalle on the last night. It look
ed very gay with seemingly hund
reds of night clubs crowded into
an area of just a few blocks. It
looked terrific but you couldn’t
help but feel a kind of tough und
ercurrent that made you watch
your wallet and girl doggone close.
