    I just wanted to say thanks for this great service. It was amazing how well these portraits and the live blog were able to deliver the spirit of this special day all the way to Switzerland. People here are really excited and happy for your country. All the discussions and reading-the-news breaks must have cost our economy a fortune, but it was worth it 😉

    peace and love,
