The View from Tiburon

San Francisco as seen from Tiburon.

What comes first to mind when you think of California? I asked my younger brother Thomas when I recently visited him in Fairfax where he has been living for quite some years.
Space, he said.
Back in Sargans, this is what that my mind is now constantly returning to: the lack of space in Switzerland.

By the way, the photo was taken from the top of a hill that - with its lush grass and occasional rocks - reminded me of places up in the Swiss mountains (the ones where you will also get to feel space) although, come to think of it, more because of the occasional rocks than of the lush grass.
