Always interesting to notice different things when you travel - like road signs indicating deer crossing the road for example
Now in Switzerland and have just come over this amazing road, built to go over the city of Basel. Mostly tunnel over the city (some of the city) and over the river, with viewing panels over the river. Don't know what the speed limit was, but we were going FAST!
Have just seen some cows with bells on! A large herd of cows is 30, but the norm is 12. Mostly they spend their time in the higher parts where the grass is richer, yielding better milk/cream for cheese. Winter, they wander through the villages and live in the barns. If a farmer has land that is skiable in winter, he leases that to the Govt, who in turn use it for ski runs for the public.
Some of you reading this have commented on the photos. All have been taken with my iPad, which I must add was dropped in Budapest on the small flagstones (just over a week into our time away), and as well as a damaged corner has a crack right through the screen - so I am grateful it has worked all this time.
