Room With a View

View from our room.
This Summer we visited the town of Leysin, Switzerland. My Czech great-grandmother, Ruzena Zatkova, died here in a sanatorium for people with Tuberculosis. She was only 38. This was the spectacular view from our hotel room looking down on Leysin with the Alps in the background.
