... and fiefdoms. One by one these mini-kingdom were toppled by powerful nation states and empires. Liechtenstein did not. Why? I'm sure there are many enclaves in Europe where folks wish they could've kept their independence. How did Liechtenstein get so lucky? It seems it was all about connections.

... of Triesenburg. Here each house is separate from the others, American style, and the streets all run along the mountain, making finding a way up a bit of a challenge.

As I approach it, I find a tranquil pond and some marshes in front of it, making it a perfect spot for a videoclip. It's a beige-white castle, with a roof on the top--perhaps added later. Perhaps not the most glorious castle in the world, but having it welcome me unexpectedly to this country, makes it absolutely perfect. And luckily, it can be visited! There's a path leading me to ...

... if I spent more time here. Switzerland has a high suicide rate compared to other European countries. There are some beautiful cliffs that are known to be popular "jumping off spots" for the suicidal. I wonder if the emphasis of everyone needing to live by this very high standard leaves some people feeling that they will never measure up, maybe even driving them to suicide. And I must admit, that ...
