6/22 Sad day, today. Judith's knee has been hurting more each day, and this morning,

her leg was bright red from knee to ankle, and burning hot, with pain and swelling.

It would later be diagnosed as bursitis (inflamed medial portion of the knee).

But for today, we decided to spend some time in Martigny, Switzerland.

The Pierre Gianadda Foundation (Fondation Pierre Gianadda) is the most important cultural attraction in Martigny and in addition to the Gallo-Roman Museum houses a car museum and every year two top exhibitions focusing on world-famous artists. The building was constructed around the remains of a former Roman temple.
