Excerpt from Europe After 8: 15

Hungerberg, the night train for Venice labours toward the town.

It is a superbly beautiful scene, perhaps the most beautiful in all Europe. It has colour, dignity, repose. The Alps here come down a bit and so increase their spell. They are not the harsh precipices of Swit zerland, nor the too charming stage moun tains of Northern Italy, but rolling billows of clouds and snow, the high-?ung, waves of some titanic but stricken ocean. Now and then comes a faint clank of metal from the funicular railway, but the tracks them selves are hidden among the trees of the lower slopes. The tinkle of an angelus bell (or maybe it is only a sheep bell) is heard from afar. A great bird, an eagle or a fal con, sweeps across the crystal spaces.
