Climbing Mont Blanc

On Saturday, 31 July 2004, I flew into Switzerland. It was my fifth visit to the country (I first went there in 1963; Heather and I drove quickly through it in 1969; and I briefly visited Switzerland during sabbatical leaves in 1985 and 1998), and Iíve long been an admirer of the countryís cleanliness, stunning scenery, and overall orderliness.
