“All truths are easily understood once they are discovered, the point is to discover them.” Galileo Galilei ...Italian philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician…(1564-1642) The Santa Maria Fiore in Florence, Italy is an impressive sight.

Swiss Trip #3: Architecture at it's best

After about half of the tour it hit me at how much different the architecture was in Switzerland than here in the good old USA. When I sat back and really thought about it Switzerland is around 500 years older than us and they shouldn’t be like us.

Architecture #1: Interesting barn trusses
