Finally! Some rays of sunlight in the morning.

In the centre of town there is a very nice bakery (‘Heiz’) which doubles as a lunchroom. The have a stunning view of the valley and opposite mountain. The lunchroom is also open for breakfast. They serve the best and freshest bread of course, sweet rolls, yoghurt, orange juice, coffee or tea and jams and jellies. The price is very reasonable; between 6 and 10 euros.

 

Today I went to a town nearby: Monthey. Large supermarkets and warehouses are found here. I am not much of a shopper as you know but these shops are worth a visit. One of them is called ‘Manor’ which is part supermarket, part warehouse. Both richly assorted and high end. At Supermercato Manor the quality of the produce and (semi-) prepared food is incredible.

The diversity is enormous. They have a large section with fish, a butcher, a baker and so on. We shopped for some meat because tonight we have been invited for dinner by the neighbours but since we are with so many, we were asked to bring a little extra meat. 


Dinner was fantastic. We had Chinese fondue (in bouillon) with three sorts of meat, veggies, French fries and salad on the side. A daughter of one of the neighbours wants to become a cook and made desert for us: vanilla ice-cream with lukewarm apple pie. Though the meal was great, what made it fantastic was the company. It was an international gathering. Didier is a Belgian, his wife Cris Brazilian, Marco and his wife are Italian, some of their children are born here and therefore are Swiss and we come from the Netherlands of course. We spoke French, Italian, English, Dutch and Flemish. As the evening progressed and the alcohol kept flowing, all of our languages improved drastically. We were twelve all together. You’ll understand it was a cacophony, hand gesturing, wonderful evening. After a couple bottles of champaign, white and red wine, barchetta, port and what not, we staggered loudly down the street to our chalet.
