... t safe to go, we weren't going to argue with them! So we explored Murren, a colorful alpine village perched on a shelf in the mountains. The streets wound up and down, the buildings were mostly wood, and there were flower boxes and small gardens still, although the temperature was around 40. It quickly got warmer.
