Weekend trip to the cheese capital of Switzerland.
At the Fete de Geneve
Eric's coworker Markus
Weekend trip to Gruyere - this is the path up to the town
Some cafes in the town used old boards for draining cheese wheels as tables
These depressions were to validate grain measures
We had our picnic at the Gruyere castle
This fireplace was the size of a medium sized bedroom
An old hand-powered wheelchair
At the demonstration factory that produced Gruyere cheese
Eric about to eat a horsemeat steak. I tasted it. What can I say? Kind of tastes like beef.
Gruyere castle from the distance
This is at the Cailler chocolate factory close to Gruyere. They had a very wiz-bang automated tour
The assembly line
This was the "eat as much chocolate as you want" room
Later on we took a walk through a gorge close to Gruyere
On the way home we found wild rasberries!
