Wonderful story Rebecca. I’m reeling about the identification papers train scene. That reads more like a WWII memoir scene than present day. The angst to just leave your home must be unimaginable. I sitting here feeling naive. So many questions.

What happens if someone doesn’t have their papers? Is this standard practice for all travelers to check papers?

I’m pretty sure my thoughts on Swiss culture are way off and I need to do some homework!
