Waiting for the plane at Zürich-Klöten Airport. My favourite table at the Sea Food Restaurant while reading the latest Posterous posts from Garr Reynolds or Nancy Duarte, or viewing a TED conference. One of the pleasures of the trip !   Menu tonight is Tuna Carpaccio with Balik Beer (from brewery Locher in Appenzell, Switzerland). Yumm!

Champigny-en-Beauce: a journey through the century retraces the evolution of a small town of center France in old postcards and modern pictures.
