Today is Sunday, the day before our last here. It is worthy of its name for the sun is shining brightly now. All those promises I’ve heard made about the view are true. Every superlative I can think of isn’t enough to describe the stunning panorama. After being in the mist for four days, I was so enthusiastic with the view I completely went overboard taking pictures of it. As soon as the sun comes out, the air warms up nicely. It makes me remember all those wonderful ski vacations I have had. It’s funny how it can be 36 degrees Celsius against the wooden chalets and freezing at least 10 degrees only a few meters away from it. The weather today reminded me of that; crystal clear sky with dry thin freezing air, while your body is being heated by the sun. Lovely! Of course, we went out to hike a bit, walk around the town and up and down the mountain. Because I rarely leave home without my camera, you can see the pictures below J The weather stayed nice all day long.

Stunning, is all I can say
In the evening we went out for a crepe. That is a very thin pancake topped with sweet or hearty garnish. We went by car and while we were walking from the carpark towards the restaurant (le Creperie), we were treated to a phenomenal sunset.

 

On our way back to the chalet, I got the scare of a lifetime. Driving in Switzerland is done as in the rest of continental Europe on the right side of the road. But whilst driving, suddenly three headlights appeared straight ahead in front of me. Turns out, in this town there is a slow train that potters along from village to village. For reasons I do not understand it apperently drives on the left side. Any on coming traffic has to shift a lane to the left, to let it pass. Luckily, there was no traffic coming our way or we would have had a head-on collision.
