We decided to spend a day in Liechtenstein, a country of 35,000 people (which is less than the college I went to!) We had our hotel booked ahead of time ... the Martha Buehler in Triesenburg, Liechtenstein. Upon arrival we were greeted by Giovanni, a lovely little Italian man who ended up cooking us dinner. Before we knew it we were friends with a German named Rolph and various other locals were drinking with us on the terrace overlooking all of Switzerland below. Giovanni brought out the "Grappa" ... an Italian liquor ... and we all did shots of this slightly evil drink. I was given a flag of Liechtenstein by one of the locals and enjoyed myself so much I will go back to the Martha Buelher again someday!
The next morning we went into Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein (which is smaller than Bloomfield) and explored the small village. We then headed on for our final destination, Leysin, Switzerland. We stopped in "Fuchsberg" Germany of course and made it up the mountain safely.
