  24. Good photos. The first with its 4 parts vineyard, town, mountains, sky is great.
    They probably produce "Churer Schiller" wine here, as I remember, a rosé, the name not derived from German poet and playwright Schiller, but from schillern, German for glitter, or similar.
    Have a good week, Erich

  33. Hi Rosa,
    The very first time I fell in love with Switzerland was when I saw it through your lenses...I got a chance to visit this summer and boy, I fell in love all over again. We went to Geneva, Montreux, Vevey, Lausanne, Ouchy, Interlaken, Luzern. Jungfrau, Mt Titlus, Zurich. Rhine Falls.....It was so mesmerising....The only part we could never fnd the time to come was Chur...and St Moritz...but I had to leave a few places so I cd come back again...Lucky you get to live here....:)
