... we went out to look around town. The skies are so clear you can see paragliders soaring in the sky. Every time I look up I see at least 4 or 5 of them heading down the mountains.

... gauge rail line is cut through some pretty hard country. Some areas have multiple tunnels and "pig tail" bridges to climb in elevation over a short distance. There is an amazing "land-wasser viaduct", basically a bridge to cross a river. It's on the UNESCO list of heritage man made sites, and is really quite impressive.
I did enjoy my time, and I know C did too.
