Day 228 - Reflections
Thought of the day: We spent the day in Swiss Museum of Transport in Luzern. The museum has several separate sections for cars, trains, boats, airplanes, etc. All sections surround a large common square where a number of fun activities are available for kids while the adults can sit down and enjoy a well-deserved, quiet moment of coffee break. Time and again I have found that Switzerland is truly a paradise for kids (and parents) as many things are designed with the kids in mind to ensure that they will have a good time. Of course, during brief visits like this, I can only get a glimpse of the surface of everything. The experience of growing up here must have its hidden costs as the suicide rate remains pretty high. Perhaps a unhappy person in paradise is a truly unhappy one as he has nobody to blame but himself, so as a result he is less likely to find sympathy and more likely to sink into despair. The paradox of paradise?
