... a basket of fruit...small bowls of jams, a jar of locally made honey, apple juice from the grapes they've grown. Anne had taken some eggs from their five chickens and hard boiled and dyed them. We thought she had used beet juice to dye them, but she said it was the juice of an insect...she didn't know the name in English.

Holger was devastated, but quietly confident of victory over Germany in the next round! A most enjoyable evening - and lovely to see Marianne & Settimio after a number of years. After dinner we took the trains (4 in total) back to Bumpliz ready for sleeping and another Swiss day ...
