Les Vacances De Monsieur Bus Driver - 9. Is Switzerland Part Of Sweden Or Latvia

I am an internationalist.

I love the fact that the world is often never what it seems. So I am in seventh heaven when I find in our wonderful residence that there is a Swedish hostess, a Latvian au pair and British guests.

The food has been delicious in the extreme. We have had Swedish mushrooms, Latvian soup and omlette and Swiss meats and salads. How good is that?

We have talked, talked, talked. About Sweden, about Latvia, about Switzerland, about the World. As Lewis Carrol put it in 'the Walrus and the Carpenter':

"To talk of many things: of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot. And whether pigs have wings."

This is life.
