With the girls away in Spain and Crete, we went up to St. Moritz for a long weekend. Beautiful weather, great food, but bad idea. Yours truly wanted to go hiking, so on Friday we took a cable car up to 2’300 metres and started a short, but challenging hike which would have brought us up to about 2’700 metres (Chamanna Segantini). This is the mountain hut where the famous Swiss painter Giovanni Segantini retired in September 1899, to complete his triptych for the forthcoming world fair in Paris. On 28 September 1899 the artist died unexpectedly. His beautiful triptych of the alps can be seen in the Segantini museum in St. Moritz.
Well, I never even got there. Had to turn back after about two-thirds of the hike as I was getting woozier and woozier. Didn’t get much better in St. Moritz, I believe the altitude is probably not too good for me yet. Heck, who’d have thought I was still sick!
Back in Zurich now, everything’s normal again. This weekend I’ll do some Reiki – more about that later.
