After Lunch at Murren
More from that wonderful day hiking in Switzerland, past small simple houses and well-cared for animals. (Do you wash cows? Hmm...) It seemed that all had remained unchanged for hundreds of years. It was idyllic on a warm sunny day in May, but can you imagine the winters?
Our guide told us that these small towns are actually subsidized by the state; no one could really make a living working this way now. How great that Switzerland thinks its important to preserve this way of life.
