It has been 8 days, and I have tried every combination of foods to allow me to feel somewhat strong each day. Today was pretty intense heat, so I appear to be on a liquid diet. The strange part is that the abundant water fountains in the German part of Switzerland are replaced with long walks along a river – non-potable water.
To tonight I tried vegetables for strength! Bad idea. I should go back to my pastry breakfast I did a few days ago. The problem is that I really don’t have any clue what is in the next little village. And with Swiss timing, most of the time I am awake, walking…. the villages are closed. So it is a timing issue.
There is a great deal I have learned about Switzerland, I am not in the French-speaking region. Ironically, I can speak German now! The problem is they speak French.
I keep walking, step-by-step…a few brutal days ahead and then I will be in France. i did use the river...to rinse off all the salt from the sweat on all my clothes. i appear almost human now!
