We live in Innerberg Switzerland, close to Bern. I am a cultural anthropologist and work for the Swiss government in development cooperation. My husband is a geographer. We've also lived in Washington, D.C. and in Sri Lanka. I am an avid horseback rider and have my own horse. I love animals, being out in nature, reading good books and (website hidden) (20 minute talks on all kinds of topics by people who are passionate about what they do). We've travelled extensively all over the world and like to stay with local people to learn about life in other places. Over the years, we have made lots of friends during our travels, many of whom have come to visit us.
