The Swiss Family Klarer




The last couple of days have been packed with family reunions. I think we've seen everyone related to the Klarer and Mazenauer Families. We also ate at the revolving restaurant at the top of the Hoher Kasten and had raclette with Dad's cousin Walter Hug and his family in Lichtenstein.

Switzerland!





Switzerland is absolutely stunning. Truly awesome! We've been to the Mazenauer farm, the Rotti. We took the gondola up to the top of the Santis mountains. We've seen so many Swiss relatives it's hard to keep them straight and eaten and drunk the best Swiss food & drink the you can get: fondue, rosti, schnitzel, spatzli, kalberwurst, Appenzeller Bier, schnapps, Rivella, and Appenzeller bitters.

Graduated! (sorta...)

Well, I'm officially done with my last semester of college. It feels good. Now I'm off to Berlin and then on to Switzerland for Christmas! YEAH!!!!!

Dublin, Baby! Yeah!



Went to Ireland last weekend with Rochelle and it was awesome! The Guinness storehouse is the best brewery tour ever! And now that I have had a pint straight from vat I can die happy. It's unexplainable. On Saturday we went to the Cliffs of Moher (aka the CLIFFS OF INSANITY!!!) We totally lucked out on the weather because it was beautiful and the cliffs were beyond awesome!

The Habit of Art




Today was the first day of tech rehearsals for Treasure Island. Man, this show has got it all: gun fighting, sword fighting, pirates, trap doors, rigging, mast with working sails and flag, rum, ropes, pulleys, cannons, and treasure!

Also today we saw The Habit of Art with Richard Griffiths, Alex Jennings, and Frances de le Tour at the National Theatre. It was fantastic! It gave a surprisingly accurate account of a pre-tech week rehearsal and even had a Milwaukee reference in there.

PANTO!



Saw two of the same English pantos this week. Aladdin and Aladdin. The Hackney one was much more traditional in style, but the Wimbledon one had Brian Blessed as the evil Abanazar. So, yeah... panto...
