Wife E and I had dinner with an ex Swiss banker and his wife. I don't remember how it ever came to this photo. Over coffee, he is showing me a picture of the Swiss alps from a jet airliner. With a Swiss French accent, he speaks of South Africa with the incredulity of a child: "You will not believe ..." It is quite entertaining to listen to him. OBSERVATION: He checked an essay for me once, that I wrote on economics. It was OK, he said. There was nothing the matter with it anyway.
