Returning Home

I just spent the most incredible 3 weeks in Switzerland visiting my friend Giustina in Geneva and hiking in the Bernese Oberland. I experience a lifestyle that is lovely in Switzerland, especially the kind and generous people who live in the Alps. I pushed myself on the hike to overcome fears and learned that I have much to learn. The Alps are beyond words in their majesty and challenges. The hardest part of the trip was trying to maintain any sort of balance. When you are with a group , you are subject to preset menu choices. They were fabulous, but not our macro path, for sure. However, when you are exerting great physical activity some balance can be made.

I returned to Santa Fe with the weather cooling down, rain had come and the challenges of getting back to life. I feel the need for Kinpira Soup and that is the recipe on this site.
